97 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010

($145; for 500 ml.) Vivid gold. Wildly complex scents of yellow peach, nectarine, orange marmalade and candied flowers, with complicating honey and mineral qualities. Lush but penetrating citrus and pit fruit flavors boast remarkable depth and show unlikely elegance, with zesty citrus notes adding lift and clarity to the dense fruit. Nervy lime and pear notes resonate on the ridiculously long finish, which eventually leaves traces of lime zest, singed orange and honey behind. Offers an uncanny blend of richness and vivacity; this will have no problem outliving anybody reading this review but it's also pretty remarkable to drink now. (Rare Wine Company, Sonoma, CA)
