The Wine Enthusiast 90 This is soft and lush on the nose, with a slightly lacquer-like scent. The palate feels thick but nicely acidic, keeping it on an even keel. Flavors of honey, apricot and preserved papaya set up a fleshy, plump finish that brings it all home. A blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Chardonnay.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 91 Pale gold. Lemon pith, ripe pit fruits and spices on the nose, brightened by a suave floral note. Sweet, expansive and spicy, with energetic floral lift giving the candied peach, citrus fruit and honey flavors a light touch. Repeats the floral note on the long, sappy finish, which shows very good persistence and tangy bite for a late-harvest wine.
