Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:

"This enticing white combines floral, stone fruit and citrus flavors with accents of spice. The rich texture is offset by lively acidity, leaving a long, lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice. Best from 2017 through 2024. 515 cases made." - BS (Apr 30, 2016)

88-91 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A compositionally similar if slightly more elegant nose displays additional hints of chalk dust and jasmine. There is good punch and mid-palate density to the delicious and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess lovely depth on the lingering, well-balanced and citrus-inflected finale. This should reward 4 to 6 years of cellaring yet be approachable young too if desired." - (Jun 15, 2015)

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Pale yellow. Reticent aromas of pear and apple. Juicy and fine-grained, with spice, mineral and slightly tart lemon flavors providing good cut. Leaner than the 2014, but shows good inner-mouth tension." - Stephen Tanzer (Sep 2015)
