Reviews

Full bodied and dry, this is a silky, intensely penetrating sip that's studded with pristine lemon, grapefruit and lime flavors. It's lusciously ripe and concentrated, but deftly balanced against a firm backbone of acidity and layers of crystalline minerality. It's gorgeous already but will improve through 2030 and hold for even longer. ~94WE, Editor's Choice
