Wine Review: We recently went to the Sole Proprietor restaurant in Worcester, MA for our anniversary dinner. The Sole is a very nice seafood restaurant. This wine was our selection for the evening and it turned out to be a wonderful choice. The wine was served with a stone chiller and served with appropriate and nice stemware. This very light yellow wine has a nice fragrant bouquet with hints of lychee and lemon. On the palate, the wine is very well balanced, very smooth, and just terrific! This wine matched very well with our scallop and haddock based meals. The finish is nicely dry and slightly prolonged. We enjoyed this wine and we are certain you will as well – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2005 Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc bursts out of the glass with heaps of apricot, lychee fruit, boronia flowers, passion fruit and flint. Layers of white peach, mineral liqueur, and lime oil complement a rich mouthfull of lingering honey which lends itself to a lusciously long expressive finish.
