Very few producers make a varietally labeled offering of Sémillon in the state, with this one including 14% Sauvignon Blanc. It's a shame as the variety clearly succeeds here. The aromas bring notes of fig, almond butter and spice followed by dry fruit flavors backed by lemony acidity. It needs some time to fully come together.
