Wine Spectator 88 points - Broad and soft, with creamed apple, ginger and warm brioche notes. Flattering, though a touch shy on zip through the finish. Drink now. 30 cases imported.-JM

Vinous 87 points - Vivid yellow. Rather lazy bead. Musky aromas of lemon pith, pear skin and woodsmoke. The somewhat plump orchard fruit flavors are given a bitter edge by a suggestion of anise and tangy acidity. Finishes with notes of quince and quinine.
