Critical Acclaim

"Excellent white with wonderful mineral and exotic fruit on the nose and palate. Full and racy, with a long, long finish. Fabulous for the producer.
Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points"
93 Points

"Shows good richness, with paraffin and blanched almond notes leading the way for full-bodied Meyer lemon, citrus oil and gooseberry flavors. A whiff of smoke moves through the finish.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"

"I find that the Cuvee Caroline has more to offer on the nose than the regular cuvee with lovely peach and apricot aromas. The palate is finely balanced with good acidity, with a generous rounded Tropicana and peach tinged finish. Fine.
Barrel Sample: 88-90 Points"

In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
