90 Points

Sunday, February 24, 2008 - Wow, this wine needs time. I had it over four nights. On the first night, the nose was great - pears and honey, but when I first tasted it, I thought this was an off / corked bottle. Don't give up on this. After an hour it started coming together, but it was still a bit disjointed - like a young riesling. I put it away in the fridge for 2 nights and on day three this wine was really good - sharp acidity, great body. Lots and lots of pears. It paired extremely well with fetuchine alfredo. On the fourth night, it got even more complex with a lot of lemon and sour apples in the mix, but ended with a slightly funny aftertaste, which I can't quite describe, but was something like peppers and creme brule mashed together. Not my favorite combination. I think this needs at least another 2-3 years, so be patent. It is 90 right now, but has potential for more.
