90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2012

Light yellow.  Vibrant aromas of pear and lemon zest, with jasmine and green tea nuances adding complexity.  Displays an array of crisp citrus and orchard fruit flavors, picking up deeper melon and anise qualities with air.  Floral and spice notes linger on the long, juicy,  seamless finish.  This wine was made younger vines in the Solomon Hills and Bien Nacido vineyards.
