The Arsonist is on FIRE! Collecting 91 points from Tasting Panel Magazine. The review will be published in the upcoming September issue. We love their “shimmering” review:

Wine Enthusiast Full Review:

This indulgent, full-bodied wine goes all out on richness. Aromas of malted milk, vanilla and cream lead to layered hazelnut, crème brûlée and poached pear flavors, while the viscous texture carries through for a lingering finish. – JIM GORDON
