Jerry Mead’s New World International Wine Competition
Silver Medal March 2005
 
San Francisco Chronicle  Panel Pick  January 2005
"Herb, tropical fruit, bell pepper, and grassy aromas; citrus, pear, and apple flavors; easy drinking"

Wine Spectator December 2004 "87 points"
"Lively, with a burst of grass, passion fruit and tangy nectarine tones.  Lemon-lime and refreshing green apple flavors weave through the finish."

Colorado Wine News Oct-Dec 2004
"Inviting bouquet of grass over apple and peach introducing flavors of baked apple edged with a touch of astringency.  The finish is long and medium-broad.  Nicely balanced and easy to drink."

Chicago Value Wine Challenge 2004
Highly recommended by the Beverage Tasting Institute
