Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

Golden raisin, apricot and roasted nut notes come together with crisp citrus, pear and melon flavors. Nicely balanced between a broad texture and crisp acidity, offering a mouthful of aromatic details. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc.

Shimmering gold in color, this Rhone-style blend has a characteristically mead-like nose; like honey and white flowers. On the palate, white peach and quince flavors are toned down by herbal notes of thyme and sage. Creamy and persistent on the tongue, with an overt minerality. This is a food wine - not a cocktail wine - and should pair well with light cream dishes.

Moderately intense floral, ripe tree fruit, and spice aromas. Medium-full body, with ripe pear and anise flavors and moderate acidity. Tasted young this isn't very clearly differentiated from some of the less expensive whites in the Tablas Creek portfolio - maybe it needs time to develop more complexity?
