Yellow-gold. Toast, nut and grain elements transform into walnut oil and buckwheat. The prominent red berry flavors persist with length and depth on the finish. Sumptuous, in keeping with the vintage. Now – 2025+.

Yellow-gold. Corporeal now, with ’09 solidity and amplitude: lime-blossom, citrus succade, chantilly-cream. Bright autolysis flavors with swollen mid-palate thump, crisply defined. Finishes polished, snappy and dry. Seamless and admirable in its blend of richness and vivacity. Now – 2020+.
