White peaches, lemon curd, sweet pineapple, quince and a dash of honey all combine gracefully, with a nice kick of fresh acidity. A light touch with new French oak (20%) adds a hint of vanilla and Key-lime pie to the finish. On the second day, it's just as good, if not even better. PAUL GREGUTT

Supple and focused, with lime-accented pineapple and clotted cream flavors, finishing with snap. Drink now through 2020. 303 cases made. — HS

It has an attractive, quite low-key bouquet with grilled walnut and smoky scents complementing the citrus fruit. There is a sense of control and precision here that I appreciate. The palate is well-balanced with a crisp line of acidity. It does not deliver quite the complexity of the aromatics, though there is tension here and a delicious squeeze of lime on the Burgundy-style finish. Enjoy this over the next 6-7 years. - NM
