91-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , August 2011
Deep straw yellow. Knockout aromas of wax, pear and white peach reminded me more of semillon than sauvignon blanc. Enters the mouth chewy, big and fleshy, with very rich apple, pear, hazelnut and banana cream pie flavors, then turns increasingly tannic on the long, oaky finish. Really great stuff here: all it needs is a little time to digest its oak. This will be especially appreciated by those who enjoy a richer, creamier style of white Bordeaux with ripe tropical fruit and buttery notes.
