(69% sauvignon blanc, 29% semillon and 2% viognier; a third new French oak, a third used oak and a third stainless steel): Complex, highly perfumed aromas of white peach, vanilla and toasty lees on the pungent nose. Bright and lively on the palate, with juicy acidity lifting and sharpening ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Finishes long and smoky, with superb clarity and spicy persistence. This bottling is consistently a dead ringer for an extroverted, modern-styled white Bordeaux. All of the sauvignon blanc used here is musque clone.
