Ripe apple pie,melon,tropical nose. Reasonably good acid for a 9 yr. old w/oak nuances balanced out and a little leasy. Still singing but down from a 92 a few years ago. The "Silver" non-oaked versions are quite good.
One of my favorite "Cali Chards". Tropical fruit; banana, papaya & mango. Heavy malo ferm; buttered toast & creamy mouth feel. 2001 is drinking well but past it's peak and will not last much longer. Drink up!
From a Magnum. One of the most silky and sexy Cali Chards these lips have touched. Wish I had more. Four of us drank all of it within a half an hour. If you don't know what buttery means, taste this stuff. Textbook. Not going to get any better....
