RATINGS

94Vinous / IWC

...real stunner. Intense and broad-shouldered...impeccable in its balance. The flavors are bright and floral but it is the wine's persistent minerality and overall structure that impress most.

92-94The Wine Advocate

...laced with green orchard fruit, lemon, pastry and crushed rocks. Bright, articulated and chiseled throughout... Layers of saline-infused bright fruit caress the palate on the beautifully articulated finish.
