    • “Intense, with dried apricot and orange notes that stay racy and mouthwatering, along with a sweet backing of maple and candied citrus peel flavors. Good length. Drink now through 2010.”
  • 97 –Wine Enthusiast, Dec 2007
    • “With its aromas of citrus & honey & its exuberant flavors of tropical fruit & toasted spice, this is both pretty & playful. Sweet but full of finesse, the wine has floral element that adds to its allure.”
