Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

($65) Medium yellow with green highlights. Subtle aromas of peach blossom, lemon cream and vanilla. Big, sweet, layered and rich; chewy but not at all heavy. Very highly concentrated wine with ripe, pure fruit flavors of citrus and stone fruits. Wonderfully ripe and fruit-driven without being exotic. Very long and rich on the back.

Excellent as usual, however, not quite as bright on the palate, perhaps showing a bit of age. Customary citrus and floral notes were prominent. Beautiful gold presentation and structure, really well made wine.

Cream, vanilla, lilac, honey, and alcohol on the nose. Strong acid creates structure but is balanced by a creamy viscosity. 30 second finish. Nice wine!
