|2009: 89 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Light, bright gold. Pungent, vaguely salty lemon zest and pear skin on the nose. Shows a complex array of citrus and pit fruit qualities in the mouth, along with notes of musky herbs and honeysuckle. This very grown-up wine shows no easy sweetness and finishes stony and dry. "
2009: 87 Points - Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator: "Flinty, herbal aromas follow through to the firm palate in this focused white. This offers modest pear and smoky flavors, with good acidity and a clean finish. Drink now. "
