This release of Taylor's Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc displays the finer qualities of the 2011 vintage. The initial aromas are a symphony of citrus, lavender, and honeysuckle. The palate reveals wonderful depth and complexity presenting flavors of pear, guava, peach, and kiwi. After several minutes, secondary spice elements begin to surface such as nutmeg and hints of pepper. The minerality carries this wine through to the finish with a firm and bracing character that repeats many of the same aromas and flavors. A stand out wine from a challenging harvest!
