Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2009
Pure and focused with raspberry floral and mineral flavors buoyed by a vibrant structure. Elegant and graceful with intensity and excellent length. Best from 2011 through 2021. -BS

A fine sense of animated interchange of fruit mineral and inner-mouth floral elements leads to a finish of lift and impressive length.
