Very sweet, honeyed flavors mark this dessert wine. It has apricot, pear, lemon and vanilla richness, brightened by crisp acidity. It’s absolutely delicious for drinking now.  S.H.  (6/1/2014)

NVWE Notes: This is a brilliant example of a California late-harvest Sauternes-styled Sauvignon Blanc hailing from the cool-climate benchland of Arroyo Seco AVA in Monterey’s blustery Salinas Valley. Sweet, honeyed aromatics leap from the glass with layers of apricot, pear, lemon curd, tangerine zest, vanilla custard, pineapple soufflé, violet, and honeycomb up front. The wine proves every bit as rich on the palate, yet is braced by a lip-smacking core of firming acidity. While delicious now, it should prove long-lived. An ideal match for baked fruit desserts, prosciutto, or bleu cheeses.
