Wine Enthusiast 88 points - Clear color and vegetal aromas of green pepper, green jalapeno, along with black pepper and a hint of smoke and dried oregano. A sweet, fruity flavor at first quickly unfolds to lots of smoke and jalapeno pepper, and a spicy, bitingly alcoholic finish. A bracing backbone for mixed drinks.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Opening with an floral array of honeysuckle, apple blossom, vanilla and ripe pear, it carries a delectable undertone of smoked white peppercorn. Once in the mouth it is incredibly smooth and delightfully sweet with reoccurring vanilla notes and a very subtle touch of honey. All of this wraps up into an impeccable, fruity finish. (Mar 2013)
