Mike Saviage

Decanted for 2 hours. Yellow gold color. Great creamy fruity nose. Notes of ripe citrus fruit, vanilla, almond paste, river stones and tan spice. Great balance of fruit, acidity and structure in the mouth. Loved the smells of this wine, even the glass after this wine was long gone. Great stuff, has everything you want in a reasonably aged white burg.

While still very pleasant, I can't help but feel that the wine is advancing far too fast. A previous bottle tasted 6 months ago was much the same. Maybe I'm paranoid, but...

Great grit and acid and roundness. It goes so well with family.
