89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Light, bright orange. Redcurrant and strawberry on the nose, with a hint of white pepper adding lift. Tangy and focused, offering bitter cherry and citrus zest flavors and a touch of herbacity. Clean and light on its feet, finishing with good cut and a lingering note of bitter orange pith.  (7/ 2013)

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
