Vinous 92 points - Light, bright amber. Deep aromas of cherry pit, candied orange, toffee and molasses, lifted by a note of dried rose. Chewy in texture, with dry-edged nut and burnt orange flavors, a touch of molasses sugar and good back-end grip. Quite sweet but the wine’s acidity adds focus, nerve and finishing bite. -- Josh Raynolds (Jun 2011)
Boasts remarkable balance and refreshing acidity. Shows nice complexity, featuring cinnamon-clove spiciness with overtones of citrus peel and wood smoke. There is just enough sweetness to excel as an after-dinner wine, but its long, dry finish also makes it work beautifully with food.
