    February 25, 2013 - Impacted by some reduction (nowhere near the what happened with the '09 though) but according to some recent reports most of it has luckily disappeared. Straw toward light gold in color with on the nose, once you get past the light scent of burnt rubber, notes of lemon curd, baked apples, toasted brioche and rich butter. Medium-bodied with much of the same on the palate with a good structure that should allow it to age well for a few years, good acid and a moderate finish.
