"Limpid yellow-gold. Spice-accented pear nectar and orange scents, along with subtle chamomile and fennel nuances. Smooth and weighty but surprisingly lively on the palate, offering gently sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors that pick up vanilla, toasted brioche and gingery spice notes on the back half. Finishes with solid, spicy cut, a hint of bitter pear skin and echoing vanilla and floral notes. I like the blend of power and freshness here." 91 points." Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2018.
