Dragonette 2009 Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley AVA

This beautiful bottling is striking pale gold in color, with an intense, complex nose, featuring lovely scents of honey, sandalwood, clove and cardamom spice on top of rich fruit tones of fig, peach, and poached pear. All this is highlighted by a lovely floral component of orange blossom and white flowers with hints of truffle. On the palate, the wine is deep and concentrated, with stone fruits, lime and ginger, complemented by vanilla and hazelnuts. The wine has a unique toffee-like richness on the palate, with a lingering and refreshing finish. [+]
