Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Special Reserve white is a 60/40 blend of Roussanne and Marsanne, aged for six months in French barriques (30% new, the rest used). It comes in at 12.5% alcohol. This started to show well when it hit mid-50 degrees Fahrenheit. At that point, it had a touch of mushrooms and velvety texture. The mushrooms and earth gave way to fine fruit with a rich, lush feel. Then, it added some tension and grip on the finish. There's a lot going on here, but in terms of concentration and structure, it seems rather superlative this year. It finishes with flavor, tinged with a touch of metal. It will be interesting to see how this ages, but there is no harm drinking it now. It can still improve. We'll take the aging curve in stages.
