The nose is quite lemony. It is also a bit grassy like a Sauv Blanc. However, the taste returns to the lemony side. Clean and quite crisp. Nice, long finish with the slightest hint of spice at the end. This is the third bottle I have had of this wine this year and I feel it is nearing the end of its life.
This wine made Wine Spectator's list of the Top 100 wines of 2009 and it also made San Francisco Chronicle's list of the Top 100 wines of 2009. Spectator gave it 90 Points as did Wine & Spirits Magazine, and then SF Chronicle gave it Double Gold. 'Nuff said.
