At this point, a bit steelier than either the '08 or '09. Excellent nose displays butterscotch, banana, and citrus oil, with attractive and refreshing hints of melon and sweet flowers. In the mouth, crisp and a bit austere, but exuding a sure feel of purity and class. Finishes with a touch of toast, orange peel, and dried apricot. It this wine broadens a bit, I'll have under-rated it at this early stage. - HK 2012-09-28
