Wine Spectator 91 points - A mouthwatering, open-knit rose, with pastry and salted almond notes underscoring the white peach, fresh ginger and tangy kumquat flavors. Firm and chalky on the finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 75 cases imported.

Vinous 92 points - (70% chardonnay and 30% pinot noir; L12321): Pale orange. Bright strawberry, raspberry and toasty lees on the intensely perfumed nose, with a seductive note of potpourri gaining power with air. Sappy, spice-accented red fruit flavors are energized by zesty blood orange and white pepper nuances, with a note of buttered toast adding depth. Plays power off vivacity on the precise, smoky, very long finish.
