The 2009 is juicy and oily, but without being overwhelming. A clean, vibrant finish rounds things out nicely. It is..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "... The 2004 is all about minerality, precision and tension. ... its crystalline purity and sheer energy. Bright hints of lemon oil, white flowers and crushed rocks are layered into the pointed, vibrant finish."
