WINE SPECTATOR
A plush, creamy version, boasting peach, apple and grapefruit flavors, matched to a surprisingly firm structure. The acidity is submerged for now but drives the long, juicy finish. Best from 2017 through 2024.

VINOUS
Full yellow. Musky aromas of lemon, lime, menthol and mint, plus a whiff of fresh apricot. Very ripe and sweet but fresh, with lovely purity to the peach and apricot flavors. Finishes ripe and chewy, with a peach skin flavor and a suggestion of peach pit bitterness. Nicely pungent wine--and not overly sweet.
