Product Overview

The 2012 J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Late Harvest Pinot Blanc exemplifies everything the wine connoisseur seeks in a dessert wine. Two common flaws are a lack of balancing acidity, and an inability to sustain its richness and intensity into a long finish. This wine deftly overcomes both issues with flair and verve. Intense, explosive aromas of sweet, dried stone and core fruits and orange blossom lure you in, irresistibly, capturing and launching the imagination of the slice of heaven that is to follow. Dried apricot and pear, golden raisin, candied orange, and lingering honey flavors pair with mouth-coating viscosity, while structured acidity cuts through the sweetness from entry to finish. This wine show beautiful balance and drinkability for a dessert wine and leaves you craving another sip. Since acid and sweetness don't really fade with age, expect this wine to continue to gain complexity over the coming decades. Picked at 41.1 brix. (HWC Staff Notes / Stephen Ansley, CSW)
