International Wine Cellar(2001 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 109, July/August 2003 ($85) Full red-ruby color. Fragrant, wild and exotic, with distinctive viognier-scented aromas of apricot and peach blossom over spicy white pepper, cassis and raspberry. Silky, velvety and long, bursting with briary black fruits. Its sumptuous and fleshy mid-palate culminates in a lingering, savory, earthy finish of concentration and balance.
