Wine Advocate 87 points - Slightly more straightforward, with plenty of sweet melon, subtle topical fruits and sugared peaches, the 2012 Semillon (87% Semillon and 13% Sauvignon Blanc, aged sur lees in French oak) is medium to full-bodied, nicely textured and straightforward, with a rich, quaffable feel that?s ideally suited for consuming over the coming year or two. (Jun 2014)

Showing a transparent yellow-gold with A striking clarity, this Semillon has a shy nose that opens up with time, and shows itself to be quite complex: melon, pineapple, notes of ripe pear, lime, and minerals, with an elusive hint of banana. The palate evolves into mandarin orange, tart green apple, a bit of mixed citrus (lemon/lime), with notes of vanilla and banana. None of these notes dominate clearly, but evolve within the tasting experience, and blend to balance the wine. The finish is long and tart, with its minerality and acidity making themselves known. This Semillon is in fact 17% Sauvignon Blanc, a fact that contributes some of the citrus and complexity to the mix, no doubt. Washington State continues to build its reputation and unique identity as a wine producing region, with this quality, refreshing, and serious white from a respected producer
