91pts Wine Enthusiast

An estate-grown wine given 15 months in French oak, 35% of it new, this is a rich and creamy expression of the grape, opening in a hit of cinnamon stick. A luxurious midpalate is highlighted in brioche, green apple and Meyer lemon, with a balanced take on both acidity and oak.

Winemaker Notes

The Lioness is dynamic and beautifully balanced with a lush texture and layered flavors. Delicious notes of crème brûlée and vanilla are lifted by a core of bright acidity running throughout. Hints of poached pear are complemented by undertones of well-integrated toasty oak that persist throughout a long satisfying finish.
