    July 3, 2013 - This wine is crisp and simple. It starts with the flavor caramel and finishes with pear, apple and citrus.

    November 12, 2010 - Light straw color. Nose is mostly green tree fruit with some citrus. The palate is yeasty and tart and a bit bitter on the finish. Very good, but not great.

    June 6, 2009 - Disclaimer: I love this wine. Not as a critic but as a fan, this is my favorite non-DVX wine Mumm has on the shelf today. Now, as a critic, I've gotta throw down: this wine is disappointingly one-dimensional. It's crisp, it's tart, it's citrusy, but just as I love Sauvignon Blanc for those traits, I have to take Devaux Ranch down a peg for its lack of complexity. It is kind of a one-trick pony (OK, two, cuz it sparkles). The flavor profile it has opens the door to a great variety of food pairings that are obvious and pages long, but while that makes it a very good wine, it doesn't make it a great wine. I think an extended tirage version of this wine could be incredible as supporting notes to the clean-cut citrus could really develop. Looking forward to seeing how this ages, too. Until then, I'll go with an 89.
