Vinous 90 (all stainless steel) Green-hued straw. Fresh melon, pear, tangerine and jasmine on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering an array of orchard and citrus fruit flavors that deepen on the back half. The melon comes back on a long, silky finish that leaves a suave floral note behind.

The Wine Enthusiast 86 On the surface, this smells of green apple and citrus, although deeper digging reveals pickled briny scents. A pinched citric palate and dry bitter flavors of green fruits and almond skins finish mild and slightly bitter.
