91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010

($85; 14.5% alcohol, 33 g/l r.s. and 4.5 acidity) Medium yellow. Subtly complex aromas of crushed stone, rose petal, caraway seed and cinnamon oil.

In a rather laid-back, suave style but dusty, tactile and ripe, with just enough balancing acidity to give it shape and verve. This is very easy to like right now.
