"Fresh honeysuckle, sliced Meyer lemon and green almond notes mingle in this rounded, forward white, with a flash of salted butter on the open-knit finish. Drink now. –JM" (WS)

"Excellent lime and citrus honey notes with hints of pineapple, candle wax and fig are all present in this medium-bodied, relatively spicy and very tasty white Graves. Drink now-2025." (WA)

"Bright straw-gold. Musky, high-pitched aromas of citrus peel, melon and minerals, with hints of quinine and anise. Precise citrus and orchard fruit flavors give the wine a light touch. Finishes with lovely minerality and pure, ripe citrus flavors but with very good rather than outstanding length. Still very young, this blend probably needs some time to harmonize, in order to show what it's got." (VM)

"Blending 80% Sauvignon Blanc with 20% Semillon produced a wine that combines fresh grapefruits with orange peel and floral characteristics. There is a nice touch of honeydew melon that further complicates things. The fresh finish and open character make this prime for early drinking. 2017 Views Tasted Mar 11, 2015" (JL)
