Expert NoteDecember 19, 2005
Light nose, there is a touch of sweet fruit and honey here, but also acidic and oxidized with some pretty obvious decay; surprisingly smooth and sweet in the mouth, still has some fruit left that enlivens the palate; but the finish drops off like a rock, and the wine seems to have nothing left at the end. (14/20)
