RATINGS

93Robert M. Parker Jr.

...kinky nose of wet wool, earth, rocks, and minerals...Pure lemon, stone, toast, and clay flavors are found in this profound, broad, expansive, and admirably persistent wine...exceedingly well-balanced, refined, muscular, and ageworthy...

91Wine Spectator

Toasty, ripe and delightful, offering a mouthful of full flavors and honey, pineapple, pear and smoke notes. Harmonious and clean, with a long, satisfying finish.

90Stephen Tanzer

Complex nose combines citrus notes, spring flowers and an oily, nutty aspect. Fresh, bright and pure; appears to possess more natural acidity than the foregoing wines. Vibrant for the year, and delicious already.
