"Exceptional. Citrus notes with some oak overtones and attractive notes of apple in a crisp finish." -- Dan Berger                


"Agreeably fruity aromas offer sweet apple and pear scents with light toast tones rounding out the nose. The wine's aromatic appeal carries into its frontal flavor impressions and forward varietal fruit" -- Connoisseurs' Guide                


87 "Ripe, with rich fig, apple and a hint of butterscotch folded together nicely, this is plump and complex." -- Wine Enthusiast Magazine
