Expert Reviews

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2011

($38; a blend of 45% chardonnay, 45% sauvignon and 10% picolit) Deep straw-gold. Dried lime, candied pear, apricot and beeswax on the nose, with a suave undertone of clover honey. Energetic citrus and almond flavors are complicated by honey, minerals and ripe lime. Becomes sweeter and deeper on the finish, which features tropical fruit qualities while maintaining focus. A big, rich wine that stays light on its feet. Lovely right now.
