Nose: Honeyed lemons, big time petrol, caramelized apples, loads of minerality, hint of coconut creme and almonds. Big, beautiful nose. Palate: Honeyed lemons, caramelized apples, crushed rocks, figs on the attack. Acidity and salinity show up in abundance on the mid-palate and give way to sweet lemons and honey on the finish.

I fell head over heels in love with the 2008 version when I was first introduced to A.J. Adam by Phil at Macarthur Beverages so I went "big" on the 2009 only to be let down by a young bottle almost 2 years ago. Chalk it up to bottle variation or a different drinking window than the 2008, but the added cellar time has really allowed this kab to shed the baby fat and cloying sweetness. This kab is like a size 4 woman with a big booty and chest - lean and thick in the right places. I'm glad I bought a lot of this 2009 because it is truly delicious.
