A first for this wine, I think - all the fruit is from Sonoma County. The flavor profile is a little less tropical than in past vintages, but it remains absolutely delicious. Ripe pear and orange-citrus fruit along with notes of vanilla and cinnamon/nutmeg spice, full yet pure and fresh in the mouth and finish. Superior to the 2008 vintage, to my taste. This wine is a perennial sure-thing and remains fairly priced. - HK 2012-05-25
