93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
($100) Good full yellow. Nutty, vanillin oak currently dominates primary fruits, but a wild petrol quality gives the nose of this wine plenty of personality. Quite broad and full in the mouth, with pineapple, caramel and nutty oak flavors nicely framed by lemony acidity. Densely packed, intense and complex but in need of time, in spite of the deceptively open-knit texture contributed by micro-oxidation during elevage Finishes with a fresh pineapple quality. The 2008 version of this wine is less fat and more minerally, notes proprietor Robin Lail.
