Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - On the nose, toasted almond, tangerine and dried cherries mingle with more serious notes of peat smoke, toasted earth and oats. Generous and honeyed on the palate with light brown sugar, vanilla, and a subtle smokiness making an appearance before a powerful finish. (Apr 2014)
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.
