WINE SPECTATOR
Broad and powerful, with a firm underlying structure that allows the lemon, toast and baking spices to take center stage, followed by an excellent finish. Nonetheless, this is balanced toward the structure now, needing time to reveal its full potential. Best from 2013 through 2025. 172 cases imported.

VINOUS
(on its finings, and scheduled to be bottled in mid-June) Pale, bright medium yellow. Ripe peach, minerals, flowers and a whiff of honey on the nose, lifted by spicy and peppery nuances. Concentrated and densely packed, with lemon and lime fruit flavors framed and lifted by minerals and spices. This nicely juicy wine finishes with noteworthy aromatic lift. Showing a light touch in the context of this set. I may be underestimating this.
