Tasting Notes

92 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of apple tart, cream and honey follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of sweetness and a dried pineapple, vanilla and honey aftertaste. Outstanding intensity. Best after 2008." (07/06) 92(+?) points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow-gold. Young, pure and rather restrained on the nose, with the wine's oak component currently dominating exotic fruits, hazelnut and honey. Quite opulent on the attack, then large-scaled and solidly structured in the middle palate, withflavors of apricot, honey and clove. Big but not heavy, and not yet showing the flavor interest of the 2003. But this is quite closed today. Finishes thick, strong and long, with notes of vanilla, spices and nuts." (Jul/Aug 05) 90 points Robert Parker (04/05) K&L's notes - Quite rich for the vintage. Creamy texture with plenty of body on the palate. Bigger and fatter than their '01.
