"Wonderful, evocative orange marmalade and ginger flavors play around this rich wine. Its botrytis dryness doesn't detract from the intense sweetness, ripe apricots, spice and deliciously refreshing acidity. The richness is in the texture, but the ripeness is in the open, generous fruit."~RV

"An intense nose, with vanilla, lemon cream, apple tart and honey. Full-bodied, very sweet and powerful, with a fabulous finish. So generous, with layers of delicious, sweet fruit. Best after 2014. 7,665 cases made."~JS

International Wine Cellar 91
"Full orange-gold. Complex, subtle nose offers orange peel and toffee, plus a sexy whiff of toasted almond. Dense and moderately viscous but with good energy and a high-pitched orange flavor dominating the middle palate. Not hugely sweet or fleshy but seemed to grow more viscous and honeyed on the back half. Finishes clean, firm and long, with a saline complexity. Good clean botrytis character here."
