Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011

(bottled at the end of January; made from scheurebe grapes that were frozen and pressed; 8% alcohol and 23.5% residual sugar; no botrytis):  Pale gold.  Peach, apricot, orange oil and clove on the come-hither nose.  Sweet and concentrated but juicy rather than thick, with bracing acidity (11 grams per liter!) and a saline quality leavening the exotic orange, pineapple and tangy apricot fruit flavors.  Slightly high-toned but very pure, penetrating and light on its feet--and long on the aftertaste.  A lovely sweet wine.

From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
