N: Still like visiting an old boat graveyard. As we move further from the saca date, June/‘16, the nose is more muted. Almost meaty, With those great notes￼ of flor wafting through. Caramel, but less flashy, nuts, almonds, hazelnuts.
P:Still broad, saline and buttery, brown butter at times, oranges, spicy notes, dry brown sugar. Amazing acidity.
On a 90° day al fresco in Philly, very refreshing. I still marvel.
