91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A bright bouquet of honeyed citrus, preserved lemon, apple and beeswax, framed by a touch of nutmeg. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, finishing with good length and grip.

Intense flavors of honeydew melon and pear tart dominate this supple white. The richly spiced finish shows some pastry notes.
With the goal of expressing a comprehensive expression of the appellation, we selected four unique vineyard sites to create this Sta. Rita Hills bottling. This blend is comprised of 3D, Machado, Acin and Hapgood vineyards. While each lot is handled separately and in a completely uniform fashion in the winery, each contributes vastly different expressions which ultimately harmonize in the finished wine.
Aromas of lemon, kiwi, orange blossom, and sweet basil. Flavors of jasmine, lime, ginger, and minerals.
