85 Points

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - PnP last night to go with Italian Greens and Beans. Nice straw color, with scents of tropical light fruit, and quince, a bit soft on the mineral nose though. Flavor profile had the fruit a bit muted so I couldn't really pull one thing out other than white pitted fruit. vibrant acidity and enough mineral to hold up the wine. moderate finish. This is definitely not a Beaucastel Blanc VV, but a decent West Coast attempt with the same grape. I think I will let my second bottle sit another year, and hope it develops a bigger personality. Enjoyable with food.
