(RP=90-93) Attractive, subtle smoky notes blend beautifully with the broad, honeyed character of this complex white Bordeaux. Aromas of beer nuts, tropical fruit and caramelized grapefruit emerge from this impressive, medium to full-bodied wine. It should drink well for a decade. (WS=89) A racy-edged version, with a thyme notes rippling alongside the yellow apple and straw flavors. A twinge of melon rind on the finish adds good texture. Drink now. 500 cases made.
