Robert Parker 93
How can something be so big and yet so elegant? The nose offers and incredible range of tropical fruit, mineral, toast and exotic spice aromas with discernable notes of pineapple pastry, chalk, praline and honey. The palate is big, rich and buttery with a wonderful silky texture and a fresh burst of balancing acidity. Very long fruit-and-nut finish. Still plenty of life left in this ’96 Drink now – 2012. Tasted October 2008.
Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012
