Just a bit too full bodied for my tastes - I tend to enjoy a crisply acidic wine - probably due to the extra time on the lees. By no means flawed, just not my style.

Strong nose of apricot that unfolds into spice...a tinge of clove or all spice. The wine dissipates into an almost salty finish that's incredibly smooth.

A beautiful estate east of St. Helena, Somerston Vineyards also creates the line Priest Ranch. This 2011 Sav Blanc is drinking well now.
