Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media:

"Medium gold. Rather oily aromas of orange, hay, nutmeg and floral oils. Rich, broad and spicy but maintains lovely penetration and cut. Gives an impression of sweet soft citrus fruit but this is definitely dry, at less than two grams r.s. per liter. Brisk acids and firm minerality extend the finish and give this wine considerable sex appeal. A very successful blend. Winemaker Mike Drash, who describes this wine as "less oxidative and Gravner-like in '05," suggests pairing it with light fish and shellfish preparations done with cilantro or lime. Incidentally, there will be some ribolla gialla in the blend in 2006."
