Pale, bright yellow. Aromas of yellow peach, mirabelle, hazelnut and gingerbread. Tactile and concentrated, with excellent energy to the bright lemon, spice and toast flavors. There's a suggestion of opulence here but also an element of austerity. Finishes very long, dry and laid-back, with a light saline component and a lingering spice quality. I'd give this wine a good five years in the cellar; it's the highest in acidity of these 2008s at 5.1 grams.
