Attractive, ripe nose of oak and citrus with good spiciness. In the mouth surprisingly tight, given the fruit and richness in the nose, and a bit disjointed as if from age. (Bad cork?) Pleasant, oaky finish with a distant hint of bitterness. Good wine that struck me as slightly and prematurely aged. - HK 2005-10-01
