The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc L’Apres Midi is a 2,400-case blend of 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Semillon that, like its siblings, spent eight months in barrel, of which 10% was new. It is a flamboyant, delicious, fig, melon and dried apricot-scented white loaded with fruit and reveals a hint of minerality. It should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 3-4 years. – Robert M. Parker, Jr. – 30-12-2013
(95% sauvignon blanc and 5% semillon): Pale, green-tinged yellow. Musky lemon pith, fresh herbs and white flowers on the nose, with complicating notes of agave and chalky minerals. Taut and incisive, offering vibrant citrus fruit, quince and deeper melon flavors braced by tangy acidity. Plays power off of vivacity smoothly and finishes dry, nervy and very long, leaving a honeysuckle note behind.
