"It is an absolutely delicious wine that showcases the best aspects of the varietal. It is intensely fragrant and fresh with lively tropical melon fruit combined with a sweet vanilla character and the barest hint of varietal grassiness. It has a smooth, supple texture and juicy flavors that are long and generous." -- California Wine Merchant                


"Exceptional. Dramatic lime, gooseberry and pear aromas; soft and full mouthfeel, with crisp-leaning finish. Quite rich flavors that should pair nicely with mild seafood dishes." -- Dan Berger                


86 "Somewhat viscous but with good acidity, this wine serves up peach, melon and citrus flavors in a refreshing package." -- Wine Spectator
