This wine offers an orange caramel and honeyed nose with intriguing quince/kumquat fruit flavors a complex personality and a low level of glycerin in the mouth. This medium to full-bodied long wine will be at its peak between 2000-2020. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Straw-gold. Marzipan honey and toasted hazelnut on the nose. Moderately viscous and currently rather oaky. Has an impressively chewy texture but is not yet displaying its personality. Finishes with some youthful harshness. The 97 is at once stronger and finer. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
