“This ’17 True Course comes bounding out of the glass with frisky lemon tart, key lime pie and grapefruit notes with touches of mandarin peel, white pepper, ginger and peach blossoms plus a waft of pear tart. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with great structure, featuring seamless freshness and a little phenolic grip and finishing very long and with great purity. 150 cases are expected to be made.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The ’17 True Course comes 33% from the Rued vineyard, 33% from the Ritchie vineyard and 34% from the Robert Young vineyard. It was barrel fermented and aged in 70% new French oak for 16 months with bâtonnage. It gives up tantalizing notes of pineapple upside-down cake, apricot tart, ripe Bosc pears and acacia honey with hints of orange blossom, candied ginger and marzipan. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses bags of grace, featuring fragrant floral and spicy notes with a racy line and long, almond-tinged finish. 100 cases are to be made.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
