92–94 pts.: Jun 30, 2006

[Barrel tasting] Lots of spices, lemon rind and honey follow through to a thick, full-bodied palate. Long finish. Dense and sweet.

Green apple, toffee and lemon tart aromas open to a full body. Very sweet, with caramel, cooked apple and light vanilla flavors. Long and flavorful. Dense and sweet. Best after 2009.

89–91 pts. : Nov/Dec 2007

Full yellow color. Pure but reticent nose suggests peach. Rich, concentrated and plump; not yet showing its complexity but there’s a succulence here that’s captivating. Finishes quite persistent, with a hint of cherry-almond. Very promising.

[Barrel tasting] Lemon aromas of surprising intensity allow this wine to stand out from the crowd. But they also give it a dry, firm feel with acidity more dominant than sweetness.

Full yellow. Aromas of peach, flowers and marzipan. Dense on entry, then sweet and concentrated in the middle, with a slightly aggressive note of reduction showing today. In an awkward stage, but this boasts strong sappy, spicy material. Like a couple of these ’05s, this seems youthfully musclebound in the early going.
