This was a full-flavored, gangly-limbed white, with prominent peppery elements.
Eye: Light brassy gold color.
Nose: Sharp nose at first, but with airing it develops a rich, waxy lanolin character with pepper, as well as buttery pear and banana fruit.
Mouth: Deeply flavored, full-bodied, but soft, with peppery pear, grass, and stone flavors. Long finish.
Drink or cellar? My experience with full-bodied semillons is that they age pretty well for a white. This one may keep and improve for a year or two, but is pleasurable now.
Price/store: $14.59 at Spec's on Richmond.
