Outer quote mark Soft and complex, with ripe, slightly confected fruit flavors, it's super smooth, with honeysuckle highlights around waxy stone fruits. Excellent length. *Editors' Choice* Inner quote mark

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The components for Foster’s 2010 Semillon, Sauvignon, Muscadelle – 61%, 21%, and 18% respective, from vines on the Wahluke Slope and Red Mountain – are spontaneously fermented and matured in old barriques, then transferred to concrete part-way through their maturation. Peach and lime are tinged with violet as well as musky narcissus and peony, almond extract and peach kernel serving for counterpoint both in the nose and on an animatedly juicy yet expansive and subtly waxen-textured palate. The tart, piquant cut of lime peel is prominent on entry while both the genuine refreshment and the richness of texture on offer here reveal themselves past the mid-palate. I would expect this fine value to age beautifully for at least 4-6 years, so don’t drink it all up right away! Inner quote mark

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Gold-tinged straw. Lemon drop, graphite, honey, flowers, anise and herbs on the nose, with complicating leesy nuances. At once plump and citrussy, with a leesy weight to its flavors of pineapple fruit salad and spring flowers. Good texture and depth here, as well as a lingering, fresh finish. Inner quote mark
