Wine Spectator 89 points - A ripe, lush, flattering style, with plump pear, fig and piecrust flavors, all carrying through a light toasty finish, where a hint of hazelnut adds range. For fans of the style. Drink now. 580 cases imported.-JM

Vinous 89 points - (partly fermented with wild yeast and aged on its lees for nine months in 60% French oak, some new): Full medium yellow. Sexy, funky aromas of apricot, nuts, spices and earth. Rich and mouthfiling, with pineapple and apricot flavors complicated by a suggestion of olive and nicely framed by sound acidity. Round and seamless but with good energy. Finishes dry and persistent, with a phenolic firmness.
