85–89 pts.Wine Enthusiast: February, 2005
Bouquet is properly snappy, tart and tropical. Palate entry is pleasingly sour and refreshing; by midpalate, a deft touch of sugary sweetness enters the picture. Finishes sour, fruity, delectable.

Frosty blue, like a clear sky through fog; the bouquet is properly snappy, tart and tropical; the palate entry is pleasingly sour and refreshing — by midpalate, a deft touch of sugary sweetness enters the picture; wins rating points because it finishes sour, a bit sappy, fruity, detectable; the vodka, in particular, comes through at palate entry.
