The color of this wine is intensely purple and clings to the glass while captivating aromas of wild raspberries and blackberries, cassis, vanilla bean and cedar box fill the nose.
90+ POINTS - ROBERT PARKER/WINE ADVOCATE
Named for the iconic image of the wind turbine on our label, our Turbine White is a delicious blend of white Rhone-style varietals. Pretty aromas of lilies and honeysuckle are intertwined with kumquat and tropical fruits. The palate is rich yet balanced with bright acidity—honeycomb, butterscotch, and subtle nutty undertones marry with orange oil, spiced pear and zesty lime. This wine is complex but easy to drink.
Trademark aromas of white flowers lead to lemongrass and steely mineral notes. Bright and vibrant, the palate is layered with flavors of minneolas, melon and candied lemon peel. The wine is enticing and lush, yet clean and delightfully balanced.
90 POINTS - PLANET GRAPE/MASTER SOMMELIER CATHERINE FALLIS

Aromas of wild blueberries and huckleberries meld with cherry cola, violet, black pepper and crushed granite. This is a nicely layered wine with flavors of black plum, brambly blue fruits, pepper and subdued smoke.
