93 points "93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Santorini is an exceptional Assyrtiko from Sigalas, another great moment for this estate. On opening, I was actually surprised at how fruity and accessible it seemed, since these often need a lot of time to show well when young. It seemed elegant and refined, with a lush texture and a beautifully lingering finish. I suspected that was only half the story. Indeed, it was not even half the story and as it turns out it was really shut down. The next day it fulfilled the promises it gave in the first hour or so, fleshing out, seeming deeper and more intense. It still wasn’t done. After letting it air out for awhile on Day 2, this seemingly gentle, young Sigalas became quite intense, the acidity taking charge, the wine still remaining rich and mouth coating. It is crisp and persistent, beautifully put together and impeccably balanced, mingling elegance with that fine structure. It is built to age. This is a wine that should drink better in the next year or two, even if it is entirely enjoyable now. Drink now-2021." (04/2012)" Best 2012-2021

91 points "91 points Wine Spectator: "This creamy, rich white delivers ripe apple and pear flavors that linger with plenty of smoke and spice notes. The luscious finish features accents of mineral, aniseed and lemon tarragon. Drink now through 2020. (Web Only - 2012)"" Best 2012-2020
