RATINGS

95Robert M. Parker Jr.

...offers copious aromas of honeyed orange blossoms, brioche and sweet pineapple as well as a full-bodied, dense, rich mouthfeel and great acidity buttressing the wine’s intensity and power.

94Wine Spectator

A rich, unctuous, full-bodied style, with ripe fig, melon, honeysuckle and floral scents that are full-bodied and concentrated, turning elegant, with a long, persistent finish.

92Vinous / IWC

Stone fruits and fresh pineapple on the nose; with notes of talc and iodine adding complexity. Pliant, juicy pear and white peach flavors are lifted by a smoky mineral quality that also contributes shape and backbone.

TYPE
