Dug this one out of the archives last night:
- AlbanVnyds Roussanne AlbanEstateVnyd/EdnaVlly (14.4%) 1998: Deep golden/burnished bronze somewhat cloudy color; strong nutty/toasted hazelnuts/bit oxidized some honeyed/honeycomb slight honeysuckle/Rouss quite complex nose; quite tart/tangy rather honeyed/honeycomb some toasted hazelnuts/nutty/graham cracker some oxidized/bitter/aldehydic flavor; very long light honeyed/honeycomb bit nutty/graham cracker somewhat oxidized/bitter/aldehydic finish; some really interesting things on the nose but too bitter/oxidized/aldehydic/maderized on the palate; offers up little pleasure.
A wee BloodyPulpit:
- I was expecting a whole lot more of this oldie. But just too oxidized/aldehydic on the palate for me.
