92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009

($14) Medium green-yellow. Aromas of ripe Golden Delicious apple, green mango, lemon verbena and oleander. Full-bodied but not at all lacking in mineral and acid structure. Delicate apricot and apple elements mingle with abundant mineral notes reminiscent of fresh rain on wet rock. This well-balanced wine displays attractive varietal character, and though it already offers superb drinking pleasure it should age gracefully through 2020.
