RATINGS

95The Wine Advocate

Scallop, iodine, shrimp shell reduction, distilled red and black fruits, grapefruit, white peach, and lime figure in the nose as well as on a bright, juicy, yet subtly creamy palate.

95+ Stephen Tanzer

Very ripe aromas of mirabelle, yellow peach, clove, honey, menthol and spring flowers. Wonderfully sweet and fine-grained, with terrific ginger and floral lift to the stone fruit and licorice flavors.

95Burghound.com

...a terrific sense of vibrancy to the chiseled and beautifully precise middle weight flavors...This is flat out gorgeous and perfectly balanced with that Zen-like character...In a word, brilliant.
