A kind of neon yellow color with a hint of green. Delicious nose of apricot marmalade, candied lemon peel, yellow flowers, but there's also a smoky mineral aspect. Fresh and clean on the palate, with tingly acid. Medium-bodied, elegant yet lively. Lemon peel, orange and apricot mix with notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle and nougat and olive oil. Long, crisp finish. Just a hint of sweetness, but so focused. A great 2001 Kabinett that's probably in its prime.
Dinner at Maureen's (Washington, DC): Had a mature nose of diesel, white florals and tangerine. Palate started off with subtle lychee fruit, orchard fruit and smokey minerals. Wasn't incredible deep, but thought it was quite enjoyable. Very nice.
