90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2014

Pale green-tinged yellow.  Peach and soft citrus aromas are accented by a touch of spice.  Rich, chewy, complex and dry, showing an almost oily texture to the flavors of yellow peach, pineapple, pear and anise lifted by flowers.  Offers a terrific combination of chewy texture and inner-mouth energy.  Finishes sappy, saline and long, with excellent grip.  This has the umami texture to complement sushi and sashimi.  This bottling is consistently excellent--and a top value.
