Ripe, elegant, pure, textured, wonderfully complex flavors and simply stunning length...the acid/fruit balance is perfect...bright and vibrant. A genuinely great effort but especially so for the vintage.

92Wine Spectator

Substantial and ripe-tasting, full-bodied and bold, with peach and pear flavors, firm acidity and a vanilla note that lasts on the finish.
