They said "Like a raspberry patch in a garden, it is at once fruity and floral with hints of kirsch and rosehip. Hints of spicy herbs like watercress and vivid red berry fruit coalesce on the palate culminating in a soft, sweet, sappy fruit-driven finish." and Tasting Panel Magazine said "An ancient word meaning "blooming", Chloe showcases a black bow tie around its white label-like a tuxedo collar; It's delicate raspberry and nutmeg palate also displays that elegance, with a deluxe textural experience-almost a creamy plum pudding effect." Stunning Value!
