95 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2014

Bright, pale yellow.  Explosive, ripe aromas of grapefruit peel and white flowers, plus a primary whiff of banana that quickly dissipated.  Rich, sweet and deep but with terrific cut and delicacy for the vintage, not to mention inner-mouth tension.  Really superb subtle flavor intensity here from steady ripening without any extremes of weather (these vines are protected from the hottest sun of the day by their north/south axis).  Finishes broad but precise, with sweet floral and citrus notes and a strong element of wet stone.
