92 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2010

($80) Vivid gold. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays pear nectar, orange pith, honey and marzipan.

The finish is broad, smooth and sweet, leaving exotic mango and candied orange notes behind. Showing very good complexity now but possesses the structure and depth to age for a long time.
