Always one of the superstar Sauv Blancs from Washington, this is especially good in this vintage. Lots of toast, butter cookie and a streak of vanilla are wrapped into silky, seductive, ripe fruit flavors that mix citrus, orange, papaya and lemon hard candy. This is about 20% Sémillon, barrel fermented.
