Larkmead Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2007
Pale straw color with hints of gold; Great aromatic intensity with ripe honeydew melon, zesty grapefruit and flint notes and a fleeting suggestion of fresh mint. The palate continues the theme with fresh citrus and Clementine richness that builds and expands gradually but always maintains a lingering sense of earthy minerality and energetic, vibrant acidity. Finishes long, persistent and elegant.
Melon nose, taking on a bit of a citrus profile. Great citrus palate. Clean, refreshing, with a bit of fizz, a hint of creaminess on the long finish.
This is a very solid sauvignon blanc, crisp and clean with a great balance and nice depth.
Modest fruit on the palate but a bit of bitterness on the finish.
