Rand Sealey Reviews 2010 Ambiance

" ...a lovely, aromatic "Rhone-style" white. It displays a brilliant gold color and an exotic nose of pear, peach, muskmelon, acacia flowers, honeysuckle and orange blossoms...The sheer delight of this wine gets it a plus. "

2010 Forgeron Cellars "Ambiance" White, Columbia Valley ($25)

"This is a lovely, aromatic "Rhone-style" white. It displays a brilliant gold color and an exotic nose of pear, peach, muskmelon, acacia flowers, honeysuckle and orange blossoms. The white fruit compote flavors are immediately seductive, wrapping the crispness of the Grenache Blanc (47%) around the lushness of the Marsanne (36%), and the appropriately named Orange Muscat (17%) adds a spicy orange peel dimension to the mix. On the back, the lush texture turns crisp and light, with tones of grape skin and grapefruit on a lingering, faintly honeyed finish, counterpointed by dryish neutral oak. The sheer delight of this wine gets it a plus. 18.5+/20 Points"
