This has mellowed a lot since my last bottle two years ago. More approachable now if also less distinctive. Lemon, green apple skins, honeysuckle, white flowers on the somewhat reticent nose. More citrus on palate. As it warms up, becomes a little more complex with the addition of a bitter element (like the scent you get when pullling ivy) on the nose and palate. Lovely clean finish. A very pleasant summer lunch-time sipper.
No detailed notes. Quite a bit more elegant in styling than my previous note would suggest, with more prominent acidity and dialed back fruit. As such, well balanced, sweetness in check. As much as I liked the '11 Bedrock Compagni, which was sweeter and richer earlier in the week, the Arnot Roberts comes across as more refined at this point in their respective lives.
