94+ The Wine Advocate

...notes of nutmeg and bread dough mingling with its bouquet of orchard fruit, confit lemon and toasted nuts....medium to full-bodied, satiny and expansive...balanced by juicy acids and concluding with a taut finish...

94Wine Spectator

...lush, creamy style, this white offers charming flavors of peach, lime blossom, butterscotch and mineral...features underlying acidity and terrific length.

The round, delicious and nicely textured medium weight flavors exhibit focused power on the reasonably complex but highly persistent finish.

88-90Stephen Tanzer

...aromas of lemon, lime, menthol, white pepper and herbs...surprisingly smooth in the middle palate, showing good intensity to its flavors of pear, peach and menthol.
