Compared with the 2003 version of this wine, this is more lively, fruitier and fresher, despite its extra year of age. There is great acidity as well as green and white fruit flavors in balance, delicious spice, pepper and complexity that develops as you taste it. Imported by Michael Skurnik Wines.
