I've been drinking this wine for several vintages, but the 2007 strikes me as easily the best I've tried because of its ripeness and purity. The nose opens with jasmine-like floral aromas along with peach/pear fruit and cinammon/nutmeg spice. But as the wine airs, it seems to gain in both depth and complexity, and notes of roasted apple, yeast, and almond appear. Full and satisfying in the mouth. Fairly priced for the excellent quality. - HK 2009-11-27
