90–95 pts.Wine Enthusiast: November 15, 2007
The understated bouquet keeps unfolding with time in the glass with evolving dill and caramel scents. The palate entry is mild, moderately vanilla-like and semisweet; the midpalate is long, biscuity sweet and only slightly dill-like. Pickle brine surfaces in the set finish.
F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal: March 1, 2007
The soft pale straw color is unblemished and clean. The delicate scent after the pour has “dill and other leafy herbs” written all over it; over the aeration period, a slightly honeyed, Crackerjack-like aroma develops that’s one part caramel and one part vegetation; an intriguing, if understated bouquet that keeps unfolding. The palate entry is mild, moderately vanilla-like, and semi-sweet; the midpalate stage is long, biscuity sweet, and only slightly dill-like. Pickle brine surfaces in the engaging finish.
