Wine Enthusiast 89 points - A sweet Gewurz, full of quince, lychee, honey, spice and a light touch of acidity. Ripe and full bodied, it shows tropical flavors, a touch of acidity and a full and rounded aftertaste. This wine will become richer as it ages; it’s almost ready to drink, but will be better after 2015.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Exotic in aroma, mango, papaya, passion fruit and a slight decadence lead off, followed by sweetness on the palate, with honey and spice. More up-front at this stage, it tightens on the finish, but give it time. Best from 2000 through 2005. 450 cases made. Score: 90. óBruce Sanderson, September 30, 1999.
