RATINGS

92Stephen Tanzer

Bright, lacy aromas of pineapple, lemon and stones. Very suave and consistent; dry and classy.

89-92The Wine Advocate

Medium-bodied, powerful, and intensely focused, this complex, silky-textured wine has outstanding grip to its fresh, clean personality. White flowers, stones, gravel, and touches of pear can be found in its flavor profile.
