The 2009s hit their stride in about 2010-2011. By 2012, it's a wonderful yet subtly different experience. The bold grapefruit tang has mellowed greatly, still present but now blending well with the other citrus and honey-like notes. The sweetness comes out a little more, now that the brash citrus bite is subdued. It tastes almost like a moscato now, yet the grassy notes of a moscato have been replaced by the tropical fruit highlights that are so characteristic of the malvasia experience. It's still a wonderful drink, but I don't think I'll let the rest of my stock hang around too long... this summer will be warm and the Blackstone Malvasia Bianca will yet again be a star at my patio parties!
