Christy Canterbury, M.W. - "Since I last tasted Troon wines, in Southern Oregon in July 2013, the winemaker and winemaking approach have changed. They were pleasant before, so I was curious to see what I would find in the wines post-makeover. I’m happy to report that this Southern Oregon pioneer continues to push boundaries in the right direction."
