Josh Raynolds in Vinous: Rated 91 Points
"Light gold. Toasty pear, melon and nectarine aromas are complemented by yellow rose and sweet butter. Chewy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering pear skin and pit fruit flavors and a hint of ginger. Closes smoky and very long, with lingering spiciness and a hint of redcurrant."
