Racy and limey with papaya and kiwi tropics and a long layered finish of minerals and citrus.

Rich lustrous color and aromas of physalis, yellow tomatoes and lime. The wine has a rich rexture but good acidity a medium length and pleasing touch of dry compounds. Reoccuring aromas with sea salt and yellow plums. Very nice vintage.

Despite certain sales guys trying to crank up the ratings for this wine here on Delectable, I didn't quite like it. At all. Advanced, burnt out and tired. Acidity is dead, fruit on the nose is still kicking. I'll pass.
