Josh Raynolds, IWC (Vinous), Sept/Oct 2014

($19) Bright yellow. Pear, fresh pineapple, white flowers and jasmine on the perfumed nose. Silky, focused and spicy, offering juicy orchard and citrus fruit flavors plus an exotic twist of mango. A chalky mineral quality adds bite to the finish, which hangs on with good tangy persistence. Nicely plays richness off of vivacity, which will make this wine a highly adaptable player with food.

Supple and open-knit, displaying good heft to its pit fruit and Meyer lemon flavors. Closes with gentle grip, a hint of white pepper and good focus and persistence.
