2001 Fiddlehead Cellars Honeysuckle Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc

14.0% alc., 500 cases, $32. This wine reflects Kathy's love of Bordeaux-style white wines. A rich and creamy wine reflecting aging in 100% new tight grain Sequin Moreau and Damy barrels for 8 months. Whole cluster pressed, non-malolactic. Clone 1 and Musque clone from Vogelzang Vineyard are co-fermented in each oak cask. · A layered and complex Sauvignon Blanc which features appealing flavors of honey, roasted nuts, spice, citrus and vanilla pudding. A harmonious wine that is a blanc lover's feast. Reviewed September 26, 2006
