Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Intriguing nose of ripe pear, pineapple, vanilla and touch of smoke. Repeats on palate. Well-balanced, long ripe pear finish.
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale gold, honeydew, green pear, dusty minerality. Medium body flavours of apple, green pear, some butterscotch, a little spicy and a bit of heat from alcohol.
Tasted April 2015
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Smoke and buttered toast on the nose giving way to apple, pear and some butterscotch on the palate, with a smoky body that lingers throughtout the taste.
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas include fresh buttered bread, apple, and some toasty notes. A bit of a oaky flavour comes through with lemon and apple on the palate. This wine would be great with roasted chicken, or maybe bacon wrapped scallops.
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Deep yellow color with aromas of vanilla, butter, smoke and grilled hazelnut.

The wine is nerve, full-bodied and long.

pair it with grilled chicken breast.or grilled salmon.

Serve it at 10-12 degrees.

Ready to drink but can be aged 3-4 years.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
