“The 2012 Proprietary White Saralee’s Vineyard, an intriguing blend of 50% Marsanne and 50% Roussanne, is from a vineyard that has given me great joy over the years (Saralee’s Vineyard), has plenty of honeysuckle, rosewater and other floral notes in a medium to full-bodied, beautifully fruited style without much evidence of oak. The color is light gold, the wine full-bodied and no doubt a sleeper of the vintage. This vintage seems to magically produce great fruit and Betwixt has certainly exploited that with this 2012 blend. Drink it over the next 4-5 years “
