95Wine Spectator

This is polished, with a creamy texture offset by racy structure. Lime blossom, lemon cake, hazelnut and peach flavors form the core, with bracing acidity driving the long, detailed finish.

94-96The Wine Advocate

...possesses a wonderful, complex bouquet with orange zest, apricot blossom, minerals and white peach that wafts enticingly from the glass, gathering momentum with aeration.

94+ Stephen Tanzer

...lovely perfumed lift and cut to the sharply chiseled stone fruit, mineral and menthol flavors. Penetrating, young and very long, finishing with chewy stony grip.

...with excellent volume and intensity to the middle weight flavors that also conclude in a wonderfully well-balanced finish that delivers terrific persistence.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Lots of texture and nerve here with more of the citrus notes on the end.
