Toasted oak, vanilla, dried apricot and almond dominate the nose with subtle notes of white flower and biscuits. Upon tasting, a distinct balance of sweetness and peatiness rush forward followed by vanilla, ripe apricot, honey and touch of butter and toasted wheat. The finish is notably intense and slightly smoky. Outstanding.
 Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Apr 2008)
The first nosings find clean, apple peel-like and peat-free scents; later inhalations find a more sea breeze like, mildly briny character. Palate entry is lean, earthy, moderately smoky and lemony; midpalate is oily with flavors of ash, peat, sweet malt and brine. Concludes sweet, peaty and cigarette ash-like, with a bite of green olive. P.P. (4/1/2008) 90-95
