92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008
($65) Bright yellow-gold. Powerful, deeply concentrated aromas of buttery apple, pear, yellow plum and butterscotch, with a subtle mineral quality adding energy. Deep and brooding, offering weighty orchard and pit fruit flavors that completely coat the palate. A major mouthful of wine, finishing on a sweet melon note, with impressive length. This was reportedly cropped at less than three-quarters of a ton per acre and is rich and weighty enough to serve with a cheese course.
