92 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011

Light gold.  Seductively perfumed bouquet of lemon curd, nectarine, jasmine and iodine, with a suave note of mace.  Juicy, expansive orchard and pit fruit flavors are lifted by a tangy citrus zest quality, which adds back-end precision.  Closes on an impressively focused, stony note, with excellent length.  Adam Tolmach told me that these vines are 38 years old.
