Tin Barn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Carneros Sonoma County Hi Vista Vineyard 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Floral and balsamic on the nose with an unusual blend of green herb and new oak that creates the impression of mintiness on the nose. The fruit here is rather subtle with honeydew melon and creamy apple aromas. Almost sweet on entry with green apple acidity quickly adding a bit of tension in the mouth. This has an entice texture, creamy yet vibrant with softly creamy and vanilla laced green apple and kiwi fruit flavors that are subtle though balance the wood spice nicely on the palate, though the wood and a hint of tannin becomes more obvious on the moderately long and nutty finish. There’s a lot to like here though this is not your typical Sauvignon Blanc. It would be nice to revisit this in a year to see how the wood integrates. 87pts
