Tasting Notes

Score: 89+Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (176), May 2008

Score: 92James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, February 2008

Lots of spices, lemon rind and honey follow through to a thick, full-bodied palate. Long finish. Dense and sweet.

Score: 92/94James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, March 2006

Tasted blind. Burnished nose. Burnt-pear-juice sensation. Not one of the best, though certainly ambitious. Sour finish.
Drink 2014-2032

Score: 16.5Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, March 2017

Very opulent nose with lovely tangerine flavours and quite a tight, corseted structure. Another wine with a slightly bitter citrus peel element. Chewy end and lots of alcohol on the finish. Drink 2013-21

Score: 16.5+Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2006

Full yellow color. Pure but reticent nose suggests peach. Rich, concentrated and plump; not yet showing its complexity but there's a succulence here that's captivating. Finishes quite persistent, with a hint of cherry-almond. Very promising.

Score: 89/91Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, December 2007
