91 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2010

($52; 97% marsanne and 3% roussanne planted on granite) Vivid gold. Good energy to the aromas of Meyer lemon, pit fruits, white flowers and brown spices. Fatter and denser than the basic bottling but with more vivacity as well. The orange and peach flavors show good depth and persistence, along with a touch of warmth. This has a bit more richness and palate presence than the normale, even if a touch of warmth on the finish distracts from the fruit slightly. This was raised in 100% new barriques but wears its oak lightly.
