ReviewsSam Kim’s Wine Orbit, August 2020, 5-stars, 94 points
“It has a gorgeous ripe bouquet of baked pear, honeydew melon and fig with a touch of spicy complexity. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent weight and succulent fruit intensity combined with fleshy texture and refreshing acidity, making it delicious and hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2024.”
