87 points. Spiced apple and white peach make an immediate appearance on the nose, with anise seeds, sea stone minerals, and a touch of blue slate. There are hints of white floral nectar, butter, and baked apple skin lingering on the edges. Delicate and white flower and peach toned initially, the palate quickly gives way to a soft creaminess at the core with notes of spiced butter and red apple skin. Hints of cinnamon, pumice, and fruit cocktail syrup mingle with a firm minerality on the mid palate and into the finish. This wine has a good balance between a creamy quality and crisp mineral and fresh fruit tones, with only the very faintest hint of sweetness just on the edges. A pretty impressive effort and worth trying. Source: What's Worth Drinking: http://whatsworthdrinking.com/2010/09/07/post-64-central-coast-adventures-pt-3-temecula-tuesday-16-new-world-arneis/

The 2006 Arneis is chock full of character, with an alluring floral bouquet and intriguing layers of flavor and texture. The delicate aromatics of jasmine and honeysuckle are joined by a hint of sandalwood as the spun straw colored wine is swirled. The most robust white in the Palmina lineup, Arneis then displays the care taken in the cellar to profile this most interesting grape. The perfumed nose is the result of the stainless steel aged wine. A first sip returns an elegant structure and coats the palate with a creaminess from the wine aged in the Gamba puncheons, which is then joined by lilting, prancing flavors preserved by the neutral barrels - kiwis, lemon curd, tangerines and nuances of fennel and a shadow of bitters or wild herbs. Persistent remembrances of pomelo and almond linger and loiter until the next swirl and sip. The 2006 Arneis is a delightful aperitif, but also a wine with enough body and personality to hold its own with a wide range of food. Arneis is also a white wine that will continue to evolve with a few years of cellar aging. We recommend enjoying the wine at room temperature.

White wine grapes tend to be easier to grow and more hardy than their red colleagues in the vineyard. Although sometimes thin skinned and delicate, white grape varietals are rarely thought of as finicky, difficult or temperamental. Not so with Arneis, which has such a reputation in its native Roero hills region of Italy's southern Piemonte, that its varietal name locally translates to "stubborn" or "little rascal" for its demanding viticultural characteristics. The "little rascal" is a wine full of personality, and as it requires as much attention in the winery as the vineyard, includes a thread of the winemaker's skill and persona in each vintage.
