Aaron: This was tasty. White pineapples and grapes with light green leaves. There’s a slight butter and citrus flavor, which is generally appealing and flowery. Pretty good. 90 points
Teri: Kiona’s Zeus – Version 2 – Is a verticle blend (multiple years together) which is why they put version numbers instead of a year on the bottle. The white blend has creamy flavors and good body. I taste Bartlet pear, peach, and pine nuts along with pineapple on the finish. Very easy to drink but rich and full. 90 points

Teri: I love this wine! We are wine club members with Kiona and I just added more of these bottles to the most recent release. It has a beautiful smell which is followed by flavors of cherry and strawberry on the wine. Then a smooth smokey/buttery finish. Complex yet easy to enjoy. 91 points.

Aaron: This is really nice and smooth but crisp like a sav blanc. I enjoyed the subtle melon and pineapple with a pleasant surprise. This is a good, solid bottle that’s easy to enjoy. 90 points
Teri: You will find tropical fruits along with some lemon on the smell. The wine feels ‘full” for a white (often I like to say these ‘drink like a red wine’). I enjoy the flavors of lime, peach, and some apricot with its crisp finish. Very easy to drink with nice complexity. 90 points.
