Thursday, May 7, 2009 - Dark caramel in color. A bit cloudy, probably still a bit shook up from delivery. Explosive nose; you can smell the caramel-goodness as soon as the cork is popped. A bit of crusting on the bottle; this is probably an older bottling. Intense attack; on the dry to off-dry side of the sweetness spectrum. Tangy and long. Lovely boullion, caramel, saline and citrus "squirt" pucker-inducing acids. Not a broad, rich wine -- but a linear, sharp and precise one. Textbook Verdelho... loved it!
