Initially, the Booker white blend offers flavos honeysuckle and dried peaches which then segues into flavors of apples and melons. The finish explodes with vibrant acidity powered by lemon zest and peaches. This wine has so much going on, so many different flavors as it is an amazing blend of Rousanne, Viognier, Petit Manseng and Marsanne.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 90-92
"The 2011 White is a bit more focused than the 2010, partly because of the addition of Petit Manseng and Marsanne to the blend. Floral-infused honey, nectarines, peaches and crushed rocks wrap around the long, nuanced finish. The 2011 White is 66% Roussanne, 14% Viognier, 14% Petit Manseng and 6% Marsanne."

"Pale gold. Seductively perfumed aromas of quince, white peach, smoky herbs and white flowers. Taut, chewy and focused, with a silky texture to its flavors of pear skin, ginger and dried herbs. A musky peach pit note comes up on the penetrating finish, which shows very good clarity."
