  • (89-92) points - Burghound: "A pure and airy nose is comprised by the essence of apple and pear with background hints of acacia and citrus zest in evidence. The sleek, intense and caressing flavors possess a relatively tender mouth feel while offering excellent length along with a lovely salinity on the balanced finale. I would add that the flavors are unusually precise compared to what is typical for the vineyard. Drink 2022+."- Allen Meadows, Burghound
