($120) Very subtle, floral nose combines minerals, nuts and butter. Bright, concentrated and seamless, with lovely harmonious acidity; very smooth for the vintage. At once rich and racy; has weight without being heavy. Finishes long and fine. (Allied Domecq Wines U.S.A., Healdsburg, CA)

Reticent aromas and flavors hinting at vanilla pastry, peach, citrus and ginger, all beautifully integrated with its firm structure and supple texture. A roasted, nutty element emerges on the finish.

Savoury, exciting, complex nose with real lift. More evolved than most, but quite a strong impact. Dense, brisk, rewarding. Lots there - great concentration.
