94 points The Tasting Panel: "Aged sur lie for four months in 18% new French oak, this wine does not disappoint as it reveals the floral components we have come to love from it year after year. Luxurious scents and flavors include white petals scattered throughout an English garden on a bright spring day. Juicy pear and white peach are enhanced by a hint of guava and an inherent crispness on the lush mouthfeel. (Jul/Aug 2021)"
93 points Connoisseurs' Guide: "This oh-so tasty rendition is both deep and layered, and while it does show grassy varietal influences, it also comes with unusual richness both from the grapes as well as from a streak of toasty oak. Full on the palate and yet not at all heavy, this well-stuffed bottling is balanced in all its pieces, if a bit weightier than most of its peers. Long, structured and inviting now, it will hold up well in the bottle for the next few years. (Aug 2021)"
92 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: "Medium-light golden yellow; attractive, fragrant, floral, citrus, melon, and peach aroma with tropical notes and hints ofgooseberry, honeysuckle, and vanilla; medium tomedium-full body; citrus, white peach, and tropical fruit flavors with good acid balance and some richness in the mouthfeel; lingering aftertaste. 14.0% alcohol; released Spring 2021. (May 2021)"
91 points Matthew Luczy (Decanter): "Aromas of nutmeg, melon and white peach. Weightly but balanced mouthfeel, combining disparate flavours of pecan oil, cheese rind, oregano and vanilla bean. Opulent on the mid-palate before landing on the finish with a pointed acidity that integrates with time in the glass. Strikes a stylistic midpoint between bright, creamy and aromatically exuberant. Drinking Window: 2021-2036. (Mar 2021)"
