This engaging wine opens with a broad array of aromas, including poached pear, peach and other white fruits, with underlying hints of coconut, crme brulee and smoke. From that first impression, it unfolds in the mouth with wave upon wave of flavors that gradually move into a lengthy finish. Rich and complex, this wine makes a memorable impact on the palate.

Reviews:

"Tight and flinty, with zingy acidity and a tight mix of citrus, green apple and honeydew melon. Full-bodied, elegant and stylish. Should benefit from cellaring. Drink now through 2012. 51,744 cases made. JL" -Rated 88, Wine Spectator

" Pale yellow. Subtle nose hints at pear. Juicy and firm on the palate, in fact rather backward for this wine at this stage. Good intensity to the flavors of pear, citrus peel and spices. The fresh finish shows good structure and grip." -Rated 89, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Light to medium in volume and heading off in the direction of green apples as much as ripe, this bottling starts off with a nice touch of roundness at entry to the palate, but its flavors run into stiffening acids all too soon, and the wine ends with citrus pith edginess invading its moderate fruit." -Rated 86, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines
