Oak is still prominent on nose and palate but getting close to full integration. Time open seemed to soften the oak notes. Nice complexity and flavor profile. The finish seems to be slightly flat and I was wishing for more acidity.
Sauvignon Blanc & Semillion blend. Light gold color; light bodied; tropical fruit on the nose, tropical fruits (esp pineapple), pink grapefruit and herbal on the palate. Light floral & grapefruit finish; slight minerality. Bought 1 bottle at the winery in Woodinville, WA.
