Wine Spectator 91 points - Creamy and alluring, with gorgeous mango, peach, papaya and white cherry fruit flavors. Honeysuckle, macadamia and brioche hints fill in on the finish. Close your eyes and you’d think this was a Marsanne from the Rhone. Drink now through 2016. 1,500 cases made.-JM

Vinous 92 points - Pale orange. A heady, deeply perfumed bouquet displays a complex array of red berry, citrus fruit and floral qualities, along with suggestions of vanilla and baking spices. Sappy, concentrated and expansive on the palate, offering juicy raspberry, bitter cherry and orange gelato flavors that are lifted and braced by a chalky mineral quality. Closes long and broad, leaving a suave floral note behind. This densely packed but lithe wine would make a great stand-in for a rich white Burgundy at the table. oak??
