WA 93 Pts - According to Robert Parker - The 2012 Proprietary White Mannequin is composed of 48% Chardonnay, 14% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Grenache Blanc, 12% Viognier, 8% Marsanne, 4% Roussanne and 2% Muscat aged in 40% new French oak, 40% neutral oak and 20% stainless steel. No shy wine at 15.5% natural alcohol (but there is no heat to the wine), it offers a sensational level of honeyed mango, pineapple and other tropical fruits as well as a medium to full-bodied, luscious mouthfeel with surprisingly good acidity and freshness. The overall impression is one of honeyed pears, melons, pineapples and caramelized citrus. This killer wine should be enjoyed in its first 1-2 years of life.
According to Wine Spectator - "Offers a little of everything, with smoky, cedary oak to the rich, vibrant pear, melon, apple and citrus notes. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors are strong and persistent. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne and Muscat. Drink now."
Tasting Notes - "Gilded in bright yellow, an alluring perfume of candied lemon, Bosc pear, wild flower, and honeydew melon incentivize the palate. Upon entry, a deliciously rich and creamy texture balances out vivid tropical fruit notes, exotic spices, and fresh pineapple that slowly emerge in a captivating way. The finish has a lively tone of acidity, which serves as an ideal foil to the crème brulee, marshmallow, and hazelnut flavors that envelope the mouth." Blend 48% Chardonnay, 14% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Grenache Blanc, 12% Viognier, 8% Marsanne, 4% Roussanne, 2% Muscat. 15.5% ABV.
