88(+?) pts. Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Nov/Dec 2008
Pale, bright color. Reticent, pure nose hints at citrus peel and mint. Quite tight in the mouth, with strong acidity keeping the grapefruit and stone flavors in check today. But this juicy wine finishes with plenty of verve and length. I wouldn’t broach this until at least the summer of 2009. This has 7.8 grams of acidity after about 20% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation.

A quaffable white, with lip-smacking acidity and flavors of lemon peel, apricot and white pepper. Clean, briny finish. Drink now through 2012.
