92 Points

Saturday, September 8, 2007 - My First Donnhoff, BYOB to a little Thai restaurant in Carmel. Less than ideal stems and temperature, but still an amazing bottle. Somewhat mute nose at first, some tropical notes but not much else. On the palate, a rush of pineapple, lime, and mango accompanied by wet stone notes that became more prominent over the hour that it took to consume. 45+ second finish with racy acidity that tingled like a kid touching a 9V battery on their tongue. Over time, a very complex nose of wet stone, flint and tropical fruits emerged. Wonderful bottle. 92+ with better stems.
