Winemaker Notes

Enticing aromas of lemongrass, green tea and sweet smoky notes begin the nose on this well-structured Fumé Blanc. Vibrant acidity and bright fruit flavors of kiwi fruit and melon linger on the palate and lead to a fresh finish with hints of spice.

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
The Wine Advocate

Their flagship offering is more muted aromatically, but there is a lot going on in this wine, especially on the palate. It is more promising in the mouth than in its shy aromatics, but those will emerge if my instincts are correct. Fresh, lively, fig, melon, flint, and a hint of freshly mowed grass, medium-bodied flavors, zesty acidity, no evidence of wood, and a long finish suggest it can be drunk over the next several years.

WS 88
Wine Spectator

A smoky, toasty, cedary presence dominates this wine, but the spice details, ripe peach and nectarine flavors, and refreshing finish balance the strong, campfire presence-as does the wine's focus and persistence. Drink now through 2014.

WW 88
Wilfred Wong of

Light straw hue. Classic scents of hay, wet grass and lemon scents. Creamy texture on entry with a satisfying blend of minerality, lime zest and light oak flavors. Light, tart orange peel and lemon pie notes in the medium close.
