Yellow gold color. A fruit forward nose that grabs your undivided attention. Notes of apricot, pear, tangerine and wet stone. Big, rich and round in the mouth. With air this develops into an amazing perfume. Killer juice. Lots of acidity and structure which grows over the evening. Some noted the amount of oak that comes out in the finish but that characteristic isn't an issue for me. This bottle was youthful and easily had another 10 years in front of it, unlike the last time we had this when the wine was more tired and not as exciting. One of the best Coche I've ever had. And tonight it's the just first of some great whites... (Bday 3 of 13)

Tasted blind. Medium gold. Flinty nose. Notes of Meyer lemon, pit fruit, wet stones. High pitched. Was told this was recently opened and at first this is on the fruity side and not showing much acidity and power. Guessed a non-Chardonnay grape. With ~2 hours of air this blossomed to show its pedigree. Great juice. Went back to this several times, it was the first empty of tasting.

Phenomenal in all dimensions. Great precision and right amount of minerals.

Deep straw and medium gold color. Brooding look compared to the other whites. Lemon, baked apples, stone and ripe apricot notes. Had a slight cork taint that came and went over 8+ hours of sips, which detracted from the experience a bit. But the richness and huge mouth feel of this wine was undeniable. From the Don Stott auction. Feeling Cochey.

This was a beauty as well. More golden in color than the 04 and more richness on the palate. Again this did not transform as much as I had hoped over the evening but nonetheless quite and honor to have tasted this

Beautiful wine. More crisp than the 01' and noticeably less golden in color

Matchstick nose and sharp tension in the nose, is very interesting. On the palate, slight green vibrancy and cantaloupe with a subtle sweetness and a firm mineral backbone -- love the tension
