Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Georgia, 100% from the Totem Vineyard in Yountville (note the change from the Gamble Vineyard), is also 100% Sauvignon Blanc, but treated identical to the older vintages, being fermented in 100% French oak, where it was aged an additional 18 months prior to bottling. The wine shows notes of caramelized citrus, a touch of orange rind and marmalade, with medium to full body, beautiful acidity, striking concentration and a long, long finish.Author: Robert Parker
