Quite perfumed on the nose with hints of apples and flowers over a gently spicy, nutty base. This is bright and vibrant in the mouth, with assertive green pear and lime flavors and a terrific texture that shows a hint of roundness but relies on the acidity to remain succulent and nervous. There's a nice white floral note on the back end, along with dusty mineral notes and citrus pith flavors that extend over the long, energetic finish. This is great. 91 points
 
 
 
Sweet grilled nectarines greet the nose over a base of dusty flowers and dry earth. This shows a subtle yet distinct spiciness on the nose. Bright and medium- to light-bodied in the mouth, with fabulous acidity that supports zesty lemon and subtle apricot fruit. Very focused and precise on the palate, with late arriving suggestions of blueberry and wild cherries that linger on the long, clean and refreshing finish. 90 points
 
 
Fresh on the nose with aromas of pear, citrus and white floral highlights. This is classic Oregon Pinot Blanc in the mouth, focused and fresh with fine acids wrapped up in taut white fruits on the palate and gaining honeycomb and creamcicle nuance on the backend that helps drive the moderately long finish. Straddles the line between simply refreshing and a wine with weight and character. 89pts
 
 
Apple blossoms, pressed flowers and a touch of quince greet the nose. Bright yet well-rounded with polished edges in the mouth, this shows off the quince of the nose layered upon apple and vaguely herbal flavors on the palate. There's nice focus and a mineral snap to this on the back end, which leads to a juicy fig-tinged citrusy finish that ends with some pith and pebbles notes. This is pretty good stuff. 88 points
