Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Delightful aromas of tangerine zest, toasted oak, baked cherries, peat, vanilla and undertones of white flower and smoke lift the spirit from the glass. In the mouth it is rich and honeyed with notes of brown sugar, tangerine, smoke and vanilla. Delicate flavors of dark cherry are also present. The finish is wonderfully intense and sweet. (Mar 2013)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - An initial bouquet of the dried yellow fruit found in muesli; later on, added scents of unsweetened coconut, honey, and light toffee beautifully complement the dried fruit aroma. The palate entry is chewy and honeyed; at midpalate the dried fruit, clover, and honey flavors meld delightfully with the oily, creamy texture. Concludes sensuously and regally. Best Buy.
