92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010
($83; 80% chardonnay and 20% pinot noir; disgorged December, 2009) Pale, green-tinged yellow. Smoke, nectarine and lemon curd on the nose, with a deeper licorice quality that builds with air. Supple, palate-coating orchard and pit fruit flavors possess serious energy and pick up weight in the mid-palate. Nicely blends richness and vivacity, and finishes very long, with outstanding clarity and lingering smokiness. Based on my experience, this is a baby, but it tastes awfully good right now.
