Lail Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Georgia 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Lail Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc "Georgia" 2011 is 100% Sauvignon Blanc that is aged in French oak. This Napa white offers layers of floral, citrus, vanilla, hazelnut and oak character with soft tannins, supple texture and a long, lingering finish. "Hazy pale yellow. Wonderfully vibrant aromas of green melon, lime, wild herbs and spices. Less plush but more sappy than the outstanding 2010 (which I rated 93 again in March), with the mid-palate offering a burst of pineapple fruit complicated by leesy and herbal nuances. This was aged almost entirely in new oak but the wood element is perfectly integrated. Finishes with outstanding grip and rising length. Really exciting potential." *-Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar (93-95 Points)*"Because of the cooler, wetter vintage conditions, the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Georgia offers a different expression of Sauvignon. Abundant citrus, honeysuckle, fig and caramelized grapefruit aromas jump from the glass of this elegant, medium-bodied, zesty, lighter-styled but intense effort." -*Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (90 Points)*
