92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009

($55) Medium straw-yellow. Captivating nose combines high-pitched orange blossom and minerals with brown spices and nutty, smoky, vanillin oak. Broad, tactile and rich, with good spicy/floral lift and firm minerality giving energy to the wine. This really saturates the palate, finishing long, subtle and spicy.
