James Suckling - "Lovely depth of fruit and beauty to this, with crushed-strawberry, hazelnut and floral undertones. Full and deep. White pepper and cloves at the end."
Wine & Spirits - "Lovely coastal cool infuses everything about this wine. Its berry scent and black-cherry flavors have a cool and crunchy forest fruit character without being excessively green. Picked at the right moment of ripeness, the fruit lasts with a rose fragrance, open and airy."
