  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (2000 Vintage) The invitingly refined, slightly rounded, elusively ethereal house style comes roaring through in this wine's dried rose, vanilla bean, yeasty aromas and in its refined, balanced, crisp and incredibly easy to like flavors. It comes with complex nuances that lift it into the highly rated ranks, and, in every way, from its handsome bottle to its lasting, pleasing aftertaste, this wine speaks of celebration.
  • International Wine Cellar
    (2000 Vintage) Light yellow. Ripe apple and melon aromas are complicated by sweet butter and baking spices. Fleshy, moderately concentrated orchard fruit flavors are complemented by marzipan and floral honey. Gently chewy on the finish, with the honey note repeating. This is ready to drink.
