RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

Rich and intense, this white features vanilla, butterscotch, pastry and citronella flavors, wrapped in a creamy texture. Firms up nicely midpalate. A light tannic element emerges on the long finish. A big, powerful version that needs a year or two to fully integrate.

...aromas of citrus, herbal tea and grapefruit. The nicely sleek and moderately tightly coiled middle weight flavors...lingering and well-balanced finale...
