Based on 11 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 93 points Vinous "Golden yellow. Bright and complex, aromas of pineapple, golden apple, beeswax, white pepper, and a hint of smokiness. Flavors of cantaloupe and apricot, with electric, acidity dancing across the palate, finishes with citrus zest and stony minerality. Lots of tension here, a thrilling wine. (JW)" 91 points John Gilman "The 2017 version is very ripe, coming in listed at fifteen percent alcohol, but the nose does not seem out of the ordinary, offering up scents of quince, pineapple, honeycomb, chalky soil tones, wet wool and orange peel. The bouquet offers up a bit of natural wine wildness when first opened, but time in decanter allows this to dissipate. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and surprisingly well-balanced for its stated octane level, with a good core, lovely soil signature, sound framing acids and good length and grip on the quite wide open and tasty finish. To my palate this does not seem to really be fifteen percent octane, as it seems far cooler in profile on both the nose and palate. (JG)"
