91 points "A blend of 60% Roussanne and 40% Viognier from the Denner Vineyard’s limestone soils, the 2005 The Contrarian exhibits attractive scents of honeyed citrus, rose petals, lemons, and limes as well as good underlying acidity, body, and freshness. This fruity yet subtly nuanced white can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years or longer. " Best 2006-2009

94 points "What a complex and interesting blend of Roussanne and Viognier. Opens with a honeyed, marzipan and almond cookie bouquet, but turns surprisingly dry and acidically crisp in the mouth, with Meyer lemon, vanilla, gingerbread and Asian spice flavors. Really impressive for its power, depth and length. An Editors' Choice."
