From the TN's below, looks like much of this wine ended up in Minnesota! Hazy in the glass, which reminds me of the Kistler style and is something I enjoy. Heavier than I remembered past tastes of this bottling being. Oak is there, weighing on the fruit a bit. We had this set against a ricotta and mushroom ravioli and that was nice as the wine needed the depth of food flavors to sync against. That was my main gripe with it, very nicely flavored just not as high toned as I recall the '09. Recommend enjoying these sooner than later as I worry the wine will continue to take on weight with age.
Brought to a restaurant paired with two seafood courses. Tropical fruit, meyer lemon, tangerines. Decent acid backbone. Not buttery but definitely some oak at play. Spouse didn't care for the oak whereas I didn't mind as much.
