Wine Spectator 90 points - Chalky in texture and fresh, this version features a hint of smoky minerality underscoring the flavors of ripe pear, candied black currant and lemon meringue pie. Drink now through 2018.-A.N. (Aug 5 2015)
Wine Enthusiast 87 points - This non-vintage is a stylish wine, well balanced with its acidity, and concentrated with grapefruit and apple flavors. While light on the palate, it’s very fruity-a style that is best drunk now without further bottle age. (Dec 2013)
