Additional Information

"Fresh, minerally aromas of peach and wet stone. Suave on entry, then silky-smooth in the middle, with subtle, slowly mounting flavors of fresh pineapple and stone. Fine-grained and balanced but quite backward today. Much less exuberant and exotic than the 2006 version. Finishes very rich and long, with a suggestion of saline minerality." 92 points --Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, Sept.-Oct. 2007
