  • Best Buy / 86 Points - Beverage Testing Institute

    “Straw color. Bright, fruity, tropical aromas of roasted apples and mangos, coconut, and peach yogurt with a silky, tangy, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, breezy green apple, lemon, and slate finish with fine, crunchy, fruit tannins. A solid dry quaffer with nice tropical fruit notes.”

    Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition

2013 Vintage
  • Best Buy / 90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

    “Aromatic and elegant, generous and supple, this tastes rich while feeling polished and complete. An enticing, light aroma of oaky spice and raspberry mixes with tasty red cherry and black currant flavors on the palate. It is medium bodied, smooth in texture, and has a mild finish.”

  • Best Buy / 88 Points - Wine & Spirits

    “This may not be astonishing pinot noir, but it’s certainly astonishing considering its price. The wine is saturated with clean black cherry flavor, its tannins supporting the fruit with a pleasant grip, like apple skin. It’s surprisingly long and fresh. Bring it to a party and watch it disappear.”

  • Best Buy / 89 Points - Beverage Testing Institute

    “Emerald straw color. Bright, citrusy, herbal aromas and flavors of pickled pepper and reduced grapefruit with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an amusing, breezy tart apple and pineapple finish. A crisp, savory, and satisfying sauvignon blanc.”

  • Strong Recommendation / 87 Points - Ultimate Wine Challenge

    “A pretty perfume of yellow pear, fresh-pressed citrus juice pepper, and a hint of grass give way to a mouth full of lemon-lime and grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit. A hint of the herbaceous rounds out the finish.”
