Note:  Back label is pictured for this review.  This wine has reviewed many times but it been a few months.  Light golden in color.  The nose is big and bold and excellent.  Slight oxidation with clean and vibrant baked bread.  Much more vibrant than some prior bottles.  Also some slight ginger and a bit of apples.  On the palate, this is explosive.  Great balance.  Slight apples with a nice minerality.  Served at just cooler than room temp which was perfect (maybe 62F).  Complex and deep.  Food friendly.  If well stored bottles of this are still on the shelf, it is worth finding them and buying.  This has years left.
