"Pinot Blanc always seems on the verge of joining in standing and popularity high-profile California white wines like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, but it hasn't yet gotten there. This exquisitely balanced and vital interpretation, however, should at least generate buzz for its suggestions of pineapple and pear and its tap-dancing vitality, breezing across the palate with dexterity and poetic swing." - Mike Dunne
