Perhaps a tad richer than the 2008, but it's hard to choose a favorite between the '08 and '09. The 2009 has a multi-faceted nose of citrus oil, spicy pears and apples, and a subtle leesy note. Rich and long in the mouth, but clean, crisp, pure, and untiring to drink. Possibly the best Dutton Ranch yet from D-G. - HK 2011-05-19
