90 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
(made from 52% vermentino and 48% grenache blanc): Pale gold. Musky, mineral- and spice-accented aromas of pear and nectarine, with a gingery nuance gaining strength with air. Taut and nervy on entry but fleshier in the mid-palate, offering juicy orchard fruit flavors and a hint of bitter herbs. Closes on a spicy note, with strong cut and an echo of candied ginger. This wine will be extremely flexible at the table.
