Rich Sauvignon flavors here, the herbaceous element made weighty by the full-on apricot and green plum tastes. There is a tight, steely texture, with powerful acidity well integrated with the fruit. R.V.



Tasting Notes:

Eye: Brilliant green gold. Nose: Elegant, rich nose, ripe lemon, grapefruit. Palate: Fresh and rich in the mouth with nice powerful aromas.
