The Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, October 2012

Produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc and made in a style that’s built to age, the 2010 Section 94 offers aromas of ripe peach, passion fruit and struck flint with a whiff of crushed stones. Medium-bodied, crisp and superbly flavorsome in the mouth, it offers layers of stone fruit and yeasty flavors with racy acid and a long finish. Approachable now, it should cellar to 2017+. 92+/100
