Michel Lynch Graves Reserve 2014 Bordeaux White Wine, $12.74-$16.99, 90 points, poured a bright golden color.
Aromas were good, but shy apricot, coconut, and hazel nut.
Medium-bodied, good acidity, smooth/sleek texture, and dynamic flavors of tropical fruit, primarily pineapple with stone fruit were boldly intriguing; a bit unusual was the Necco Wafer vibe going on here (see: The Fun of Smelling).
Finished long on wet stone notes and hints of cumquat, ginger, and coconut with a well integrated 12.5% alcohol.
Though luscious, this wine was deceptively dry, and paired perfectly with my Yellow-fin tuna salad.
Varietals were 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Sémillon.
