Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($36; 64% roussanne and 36% viognier) Slightly hazy, unfiltered appearance. Pure aromas of pear, apricot nectar, flowers and subtle spices. Lightly spicy, round and subtly insistent in the mouth, with a tangy tropical note of star fruit along with peach and lichee. Offers an intriguing combination of spicy and succulent elements. Finishes tactile, nicely dry and persistent, with solid structure.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

A blend of 60% Roussanne and 40% Viognier from the Denner Vineyard's limestone soils, the 2005 The Contrarian exhibits attractive scents of honeyed citrus, rose petals, lemons, and limes as well as good underlying acidity, body, and freshness. This fruity yet subtly nuanced white can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years or longer.
