| Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Dec 2008)
The opulent bouquet features scents of pear fruit and nutmeg. Entry is ripe, properly acidic, tart to off dry and balanced; the midpalate is pleasingly fruity, a touch baked and a bit minerally. Ends up medium-sweet and tasting of peel and fruit meat. Elegant, true to the source and concentrated.
