RATINGS

95The Wine Advocate

...This medium to full-bodied wine of huge breadth has superb focus and concentration. Pure flavors of smoky minerals and botrytis can be detected in its silky-textured, rich,and complex personality as well as in its admirably long finish.

95Wine Spectator

Distinctive flavors of coconut, vanilla, grapefruit and lemon candy mingle with the firm structure...

*IWC - David Schildknecht

Firmly slatey and bright, with grapefruit, honey, licorice and a hint of vanilla. Tensile, with tautness of acidity strikingly juxtaposed to ripe fruit and high residual sugar.
