Bright gold. Deeper, richer and more powerful than the Sonoma Coast bottling, offering aromas and flavors of poached pear, papaya, orange zest and smoky minerals. Juicy, palate-coating orchard fruit and floral flavors are lifted by juicy acidity and sharpened by a gingery nuance. Shows very good energy and clarity on the tangy, focused, very long finish.

Very nice depth of flavor. Just plain "tasty".

Would buy again

As advertised, this wine bridges the gap between Old and New Worlds nicely. It has good acid without being austere and still has some butter but not like Paula Deen. To tell the truth I like this wine better than the twice-as-expensive Morlet.
Blend overruns that typical Ramey SV nuance

Agree with other comments here that conglomerated grapes lead to a nice, but not interesting or complex offering - significant departure from SV Ramey offerings. Would even argue not a great QPR. Pale shimmering gold hue. Pineapple and Meyer lemon, faint minerality. Bit of lemongrass across the palate with green hay at conclusion. B-/86

My problem with this wine is that the aftertaste is so strong of toasted barrel that the wine seems tired and less fresh.
