91 pts.Wine Enthusiast: October, 2010
Luscious and perfumy, with Christmas clementine and vanilla aromas. However, there’s far more orange on the nose than on the palate: a big alcohol bite comes first, followed by neutral flavor with just a suggestion of orange, and a floral finish.

The nose leaps from the glass in sweet/sour waves of ripe orange and orange hard candy. The last whiff shows staying power as the orange perfume is every bit as vivid and alluring as in the first inhalation. The mouth remains true to the good bouquet as both the palate entry and the midpalate burst with ripe juicy orange flavor. The finish is long, citrusy acidic and pleasing.

Clear. Intense, sweet clementine/tropical, perfumed aromas. Soft, rounded texture. Moderately lush and fruity mouthfeel gives way to a bold, mineral and grain accented palate. Quite aggressive, yet well structured with a clean razor sharp finish.
Santé: March, 2004
Moderately rich with excellent clean, bright orange flavors through to the finish. An excellent mixer.
