94 points Decanter: "Honeyed pear and cashew notes, with a touch of honeysuckle in the background. Full-bodied, very rich and round, but dry and nutty in the mouth. The wine is matured in 100% new oak barriques, but the Roussanne takes to it well . The oak influence is clear but not overt. Some fine tannin on the finish contributes to the texture and long length. Powerful, and very fine indeed. 100% Roussanne. Drinking Window 2018-2028. Alcohol 15%. (Oct 2017)"
93 points Wine Spectator: "[$85 list] A ripe, lush, tropical style, with mango and papaya notes gliding through, inlaid liberally with warm butter and piecrust accents. Shows flashes of mirabelle plum and verbena for contrast on the finish. A hedonist's delight. Drink now through 2019. 28 cases imported. (6/15/18)"
