Honeyed citrus, nuttiness and a slight grassy quality on the nose. Steely feel with green fruit flavors and grassy herbs. Saline minerality. 88 pts. 11/24/12

The Cadaretta SBS has intense, showy aromatics that display a purity of fruit, slathered with a saline minerality. Acids are fresh and racy, with concentrated aroma and flavor. The wine highlights the cool-climate flavors of Washington State. Its style is unique in Washington because we pick early and limit malolactic fermentation to focus on the fresh intensity of the grapes. We do not soften the edges of natural grape acid, which yields an intense and exciting wine that lights up the palate. It's meant to be consumed young, ideally within 2-3 years of bottling. - WineryVARIETAL COMPOSITION:76% Sauvignon Blanc24% SemillonGRAPE SOURCES: Frenchman Hills Vineyard, Tagus One and Desert Hill (all Yakima Valley), Southwind Estate (Walla Walla Valley).
