Wine Enthusiast 90 points - A slightly inexpressive bouquet that offers delicate dried, yellow fruit aromas; aeration releases minor scents of brine and dill that complement the fruit. The palate entry is silky and as sweet as honey; at midpalate flavors of white pepper, beeswax, light caramel and nougat are added. The finish highlights the nougat and caramel.
