Wine Spectator 90 points - A vivid pineapple juice accent lends some extra intensity to the lemon, apple and grapefruit notes, very crisp and refreshing. Reveals a touch of lemon verbena on the finish. Drink now. -MW

Vinous 90 points - Green-tinged yellow. Aromas of dried pear, white flowers and succulent herbs show very good depth and pick up a smoky quality with air. Fleshy, palate-staining orchard and citrus fruit flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity and a bitter quinine note. Smoothly combines vivacity and richness and finishes very long, with lingering florality and a touch of tarragon. All of this fruit was sourced from the Haarstad vineyard but that isn’t indicated on the label.
