Robert Parker - 95 See more...
...The superb aromatics (pineapple, acacia, vanilla, and honey) are followed by a rich, full-bodied, atypically powerful Climens that possesses adequate acidity, high alcohol, and even higher levels of extract and fruit.
Wine Spectator - 94 See more...
Gorgeous. Aromas of vanilla, honey and lemon, with a hint of biscuit. Full-bodied, very sweet, with a thick texture and a long, fruity finish.
