Wine Spectator 90 - Deftly balanced, if on the weightier side, offering complex toasty, smoky oak and rich nectarine, white peach and citrus flavors, with a pithy citrus texture that gives this a mild tannic impression. Drink now through 2020.
Wine Enthusiast 90 - This wine comes from a wide selection of fantastic vineyards, including Pahlmeyer's coastal outpost, Wayfarer, as well as Ritchie Vineyard and a site on Atlas Peak. Dark golden in color, it's luscious in vanilla, ripe apple and Meyer lemon, medium bodied veering into rich. Buoyed by overtones of fresh peach, it's a worthwhile quaffer on its own or at the table.
Bright gold in color, this wine opens with generous floral aromas of neroli, Acacia flower and honeysuckle, grounded by notes of fresh ripe apricot and white peach. A silky, viscous mouthfeel supports a complex and fleshy palate including flavors of lemon meringue and honeydew melon with a hint of mandarin orange. The finish is long and clean, with notes of grapefruit, warm vanilla and roasted pecan.
