    International Wine Challenge - November 2014

    88 pts "Pale gold. Aromas of peach nectar and pear, with floral and orange zest topnotes. Smooth and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering juicy pit fruit flavors braced by a note of tangy lemon curd. Nicely plump but maintains its focus, finishing slightly warm, with good breadth and lingering floral character." - Josh Raynolds

    Wine Enthusiast Buying Guide May 1, 2016

    89 points "From White Hawk Vineyard near Los Alamos, this wine has a nose that is both edgy with tangerine rind and ripe with warmer crème brûlée notes. The palate plays the same trick, welcoming with broad white peach, Japanese pear and vanilla-cream flavors, yet clinging to a zesty line of lime pith throughout." -Matt Kettman

    Limited Production Nagy Wines “As with most fine viogniers, this one has a perfumed nose: citrus, peach, pear, honeysuckle and ginger with a hint of orange marmalade. There's a big splash on mouth entry but then it focuses on the flavor task at hand on mid-palate, showing stone fruit — like nectarine, peach and apricot — with a zippy lemon/lime chiffon on the back beat. The nicely honed flavors are spot on, never veering into excess as so many viogniers do. It uses grace and subtlety as a way of making its points on the palate.” -Dennis Schaefer

    Wine Enthusiast Buying Guide April 1, 2016

    89 points "Coming from Bien Nacido Vineyard, this bottling of a rather rare grape shows brisk aromas of tonic, green pears, lime skins and warm concrete. The palate offers nearly grassy notes of lemongrass, tamarind, bergamot and other exotic citrus, making this a great alternative white wine." -Matt Kettman

    Limited Production Nagy Wines "Who is their right mind makes pinot blanc anymore? Well, judging by this Nagy bottling, maybe it's time for that varietal to make a comeback. Citrus, lime, apricot, tangerine, and fig, buffered by minerality, come through on the nose. On the palate, lemony citrus, along with apricot and orange peel, as well as talc, chalk and minerals. Bright and sunny in the mouth, it has great acidity that invites another sip. The more you taste and revisit this wine, the more cumulatively generous and enjoyable it becomes." -Dennis Schaefer
