From the bottle:
“Paul Dolan Vineyards is located in the heart of Mendocino County, Northern California, a secluded land of rich biological diversity and unique microclimates. Grapes are sourced from meticulously tended vineyards, and our balanced winemaking practices support each bottling’s expression of terroir for wines of unforgettable character.
Grown along the northern banks of the Russian River, a region prized for its vibrant, lush wines, the Paul Dolan Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc tastes of brightly refreshing kiwi and citrus zest with an aromatic lemongrass perfume.
The 2013 Paul Dolan Vineyards Mendocino County Sauvignon Blanc begins with a rather elegant aroma of citrus, light floral notes, a little lemongrass and a touch of tropical fruit (kiwi). Tasting the wine reveals plenty of crisp fruit, good acidity and well integrated spice. The fruit is similar to the nose but quite zesty in the mouth and features touches of honey. Nice spice notes come to the front on the long finish. I’m not sure I’ve ever had a Sauvignon Blanc with such nice zesty, vibrant spice notes.
