92 points "Bright yellow. Intense aromas of white peach, pineapple and lemon zest, with floral and ginger topnotes. Juicy and expansive on the palate, with vibrant acidity giving lift and focus to the rich pit fruit and pineapple flavors. Spicy notes linger impressively on the sappy, focused finish."

93 points "More tightly wound and even backwards, the 2011 Roussanne Estate needs another year in bottle to round into form. Barrel-fermented and aged in 25% new French oak, its medium gold color is followed by notions of orange blossom, buttered toast and grilled golden fruits on the nose. A big, rich wine that has an unctuous texture, juicy acidity and beautiful length, it will have a solid 5-7 year drink window, if not longer." Best 2014-2019
