Review

Bright gold.  A wild, pungent bouquet evokes wet stone, iodine, pear skin and citrus pith, along with a smoky overtone.  Rich and fleshy but dry, offering oak-spiced lime, anise and pear skin flavors underscored by dusty minerals and a gingery nuance.  This really stains the palate.  Closes silky and extremely long, with resonating mineral and spice notes and excellent clarity.  Shows the vivacity of the vintage to full effect but there's serious power and depth of flavor here as well.
