Burghound also provided a detailed assessment, giving it a score range of 90-93 points. The review highlights that while the wood treatment in this wine is not subtle, it is also not overwhelming. The aromas are described as "ripe and fresh," featuring notes of "pear and apple compote, lemon rind and wafting spice nuances." The citrus character is evident on the palate, contributing to the "dense and sappy medium-bodied flavors." A bracing salinity is noted on the moderately austere finish, which the reviewer mentions is not as persistent but offers slightly better depth. The review concludes by suggesting that the wine "should age well if desired."
