Beautiful, complex "90+" nose of leesy white fruit, candied citrus, toasted nuts, subtle spice. Unfortunately, in the mouth the wine seemed disjointed, angular, and overly acidic - not the smooth and seamless impression promised by the aromas. Perhaps this bottle was reaching the end of its freshness, or it was just going through a rough phase. In any case, in this tasting it came across as a good wine with a memorable nose but a disappointing follow-through. - HK 2009-02-18
