Saturday, March 23, 2013 - 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma Mountain. Skin-fermented resulting in an "orange" wine in the style of those from Collio. A very interesting effort and not for the faint of heart. Cloudy (unfiltered) lemon/gold in color, with medium (+) intensity. The nose is clean, of medium plus to pronounced intensity and quite unlike any other SB, with aromas of overripe peach, honey and a moscato-like muskyness. The nose is moderately complex and developed. The palate is dry and much more linear than the nose, with medium (+) acidity, alcohol and minerality. Mostly citrus flavors. The mouthfeel is smooth, the flavor intensity is medium plus and the finish is long. Overall, this is a full-bodied white that, although ready to drink, appears to also be age-worthy. The aroma and flavor profile appears to have evolved considerably in the last year, and so its evolution is definitely worth watching.
