RATINGS

96The Wine Advocate

Heady of honeysuckle, iris, anise, heliotrope, rowan, and white peach lead into a silken, lushly-fruited, liquidly floral palate that caresses yet enlivens. Suggestions of ginseng and almond paste add to the complexity of a lingering lift-off of a finish. I was completely carried away by this wine...

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Aromas of citrus peel, crushed stone, white flowers and menthol, plus a suggestion of licorice. Tight and juicy, with terrific penetration to its intense lemon and mineral flavors.
