The 2008 vintage was cool and wet, which may explain this wine's more abnormal green, vegetal qualities. The green stuff starts on the nose, which suggests canned peas. The palate is soft, round and tastes slightly of asparagus. It still shows nice feel and richness, but the flavors and aromas are underdeveloped.
