Burghound | Rating: 95A deft touch of wood serves as a background presence for the reserved but fresh and bright floral, citrus, brioche and spice aromas that are strikingly complex and broad and complement the full-bodied flavors that are deep, dense and massive with exceptionally powerful drive and intensity on the gorgeously long and palate staining finish. This is an impressive wine blessed with great underlying material, perfect balance and superb harmony plus it's built for the long haul. Note however that the expressiveness of the nose aside, the flavors are like a block of stone and thus I would suggest not opening a bottle for the next few years as it would likely be a complete waste.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 3rd Quarter, 2009
Wine Spectator | Rating: 94This is stripped down to the essence of place, offering an elegant, pure and precise expression of mineral, with hints of lime, apricot, floral and spice flavors dancing around the edges. The length is ethereal.Author: Bruce Sanderson
