"Strong roasted cashew aromas. Full and open natured on the front palate. A complex aroma and a layered palate. Highly satisfying."
Toni Paterson MW | 95 Points

"Medium straw. Fine bead. Intense chalky grilled bread brioche bouquet. Fine bead, lemony acidity apple pie notes. Good freshness with nutmeg to the finish. Mousse is integrated but not overall powerful."
Andrea Pritzker MW | 95 Points
