Seghesio Russian River Valley 2012 Arneis (White wine), $10.99-$18.99, 91 points, was a
Wheat color trending gray at the glass shallows.
Aromas of pome blossoms, apricots, and peach were beautiful.
The light body with fair to good acidity carried subtle flavors of peach, tangerine, and watermelon; though almost subconscious, these flavors were delicate, delicious, and distinguished.
Finished long on the trailing palate with hints of Lychee, the 13% alcohol, and a hint of ginger.
Paired perfectly with my fried clams.
Keep in mind that this varietal is best tasted young, but I'm confident that the screw-cap helped to retain much of its youth!
