Once in the glass you can really smell the wonderful ripe fruit. A nice pear/melon combination hits my nose first. A hint of citrus with a lemon/grapefruit combination. Little mineral at the end and very crisp. I tasted the same vintage a year ago and the aromas changed slightly.
Wonderful tasting wine. I personally loved the 08 and I must say the 09 is even better and aged very well. Pear and apple are the dominant flavors throughout the taste. In the middle the lemon citrus makes an appearance and the finish is soft and creamy. The flavor combination and aromas make this a hard wine to put down. Passaggio Wines continue to be fantastic year after year. Cindy you get an A+ for this one!
