Stephen Tanzer's, International Wine Cellar, May/June 2012
- "Bright, green-tinged yellow. Intensely perfumed bouquet evokes dried pear, honeydew, jasmine and chamomile. Spicy and firm on the palate, with bitter lemon and orchard fruit flavors that flesh out with air. A juicy melon nuance emerges in the glass and carries through a long, supple, spice-dominated finish. This wine, which saw 52% new French oak, is scheduled to be released in August, 2013."
