Pickled and challenged, with a slightly skunky nose that indicates that it is already past its prime. And when tasted side-by-side with the 2008, the newer wine is definitely the way to go. This wine tastes mildly tart and green, with a spritzy mouthfeel that's not in union with the wine'sbody or flavors.
