Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2005
($40) Black cherry, white peach, lime and vanilla in the nose. Toasted nut and alkaline mineral notes accent a sweet mouthful of peach, quince and banana. Creamy yet with underlying mineral firmness and persistent brightness. This split personality, along with the increasingly honeyed, smoky, quince fruit character the wine takes on with air, reminds me of a Loire Valley chenin blanc. Quince jelly, caramelized peach, black cherries in syrup and wet stone inform the long, strong finish. 2 stars.
