"Consistent year after year, this blend of 67% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Semillon is modeled after top-flight white Bordeaux. Deep gold, toasty and scented with olive oil, walnuts and loam, it hits the palate full-on with a rainbow of flavors: citrus, stone and tropical fruits, all accented with toast, oil and nuts from barrel aging. Riveting, delicious and unique. Editors Choice." P.G

"($36; a 68/32 blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon; aged in 75% new oak for six months) Complex nose melds ginger, lemon drop, mirabelle, honey and spicy oak. Then dense, sappy and highly concentrated, with a strong spice quality and a distinctly tactile impression of structure. This very rich wine benefits from the piquant citrus zest and gooseberry notes contributed by the sauvignon component. The yields in 2009 were lower than usual, noted winemaker Peterson, and some of the sauvignon blanc was fermented with wild yeasts. This bottling has consistently been one of Washington's finest whites in recent vintages, and is a serious outperformer in 2009, a tricky vintage for white wines in Washington."~ST
