Pop and pour. A wondrous medium gold color. On the nose: Asian pear, oyster shells, lemon, floral, toasted nuts. Taste: great creamy-chalky mouthfeel with lemon, minerals, tart green apple, honey, cider. YUM! Still delicious at 27 years. — 21 days ago

This wine rocks. Gripping wine.
Raspberry and some black fruits. Very dense and structured.
Held up well with heavy Italian food
Softening with airtime. Around 3 hour mark - provides some interesting elegance with drying tannins.
