    "This is one of those wines that I have a love hate relationship with because while I admire the density and richness it always carries more oak than I can warm up to and such is the case in 2013. The wood treatment fights with the very ripe and overtly exotic yellow fruit aromas that are in keeping with the impressively concentrated and opulent middle weight plus flavors. It would be natural to assume that an oaky and exceptionally concentrated wine would be heavy but once again there is sufficient lemon-tinged acidity to maintain the balance. That said, while there will undoubtedly be those who enjoy the oaky full-on in-your-face style, I am not one of them."
    Grade: 87-90 Points
