RATINGS

92+ Stephen Tanzer

Sexy aromas of ripe peach, smoke and minerals...elegant and pure in the mouth, with suave flavors of peach and spice. Nicely ripe... The finish is tactile, saline, intense and classically dry...

Bernard Morey has always been one of my favorite producers, fashioning upfront, juicy, succulently-styled wines…”
