Wine & Spirits 92 points - Ivo Jeramaz, Mike Grgich’s nephew, grows this wine at estate vineyards in American Canyon and Carneros, where most of his sauvignon vines are the musque clone. He ferments it in foudres, with a small portion in older French oak barrels. That oak is evident in a vanillin scent when the wine is first poured, but the fruit has retained its brightness and clarity, so the oak aging adds depth and plushness while the wine feels tight and concentrated, focused on passion fruit and juicy orange notes.
Wine Spectator 88 points - Juicy and bright, this offers mouthwatering lemon, lime and pear flavors, with accents of green apple, papaya and melon. Drink now. 13,844 cases made.-MW
