Larkmead Sauvignon Blanc Lillie B4 Block Napa Valley 2009

Member Review by Eric Guido:

On the nose, I found citrus and lime, floral notes, peach, wet stone and the slightest hint of vanilla. On the palate, this wine seduced me with a rich yet eloquent wash of plush texture and ripe fruit. The acidity was perfectly balanced and kept it fresh and mouth watering, while flavors of peach, lemon curd and saline minerals filled the senses. The finish showed a staying flavor of pineapple on the tongue, while the sweetness slowly faded.

The nose showed orange peel with floral hints, peach, almond and the slightest touch of oak. On the palate it was soft and silky, showing citrus tinged peach with herbs and a hint of kiwi. The finish was long yet clean adding a tart and bitter hint into the mix. I must say that I look forward to each experience that I have with this wine as it's elegant nose pulls you in, it's well polished palate calms your senses, and it's refreshing tart finish keeps you begging for more.
