Wine Enthusiast91-93 Barrel sample. A deeply golden-colored wine, but to taste, it is more poised and fresh than the color suggests. There's an attractive liquorous feel to the wine, but that is balanced by good clean, fresh fruit tastes. This will be delicious.

Wine SpectatorSubtle aromas of honey, lemon peel, cream, vanilla and apple pie follow through to a thick palate, with lots of sweetness. There's also loads of clove and other spices. Not as exciting as from barrel, but still outstanding. Best after 2011.
