Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Delightful aromas of breakfast cereal, honeysuckle, candied orange and grape leap fro the glass along with buttered biscuits. A sumptuous mouthfeel opens up into flavors of marmalade, butter, toasted wheat, and a hint of grape. A deeper layer of baked stone fruits is detectable. A wonderfully balanced and honeyed finish follows. (Mar 2013)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - Smells of smoky, burnt nectarine, apricot and buttery scents that are toasty, nutty and heavenly. Entry is chewy, viscous, concentrated and intensely honeyed; the midpalate is waxy, mildly spicy, jammy, nutty and utterly decadent. Finishes with panache and grace.
