RATINGS

92Stephen Tanzer

Finer floral, nut skin, ripe citrus and honeysuckle aromas. Dense, sweet and concentrated, but steely and sharply delineated. Shows lovely balance and finesse from the outset...

91Wine Spectator

A bit angular, but there is a lot of fat underneath, with apple tart, honey, lemon, spice and vanilla bean character. Cellar and you should be rewarded.
