Can't find a flaw here. It's a lot of everything but in a very, very good way.

Awesome. Candied lemon, green apple, almonds, acid, texture. Sautéed chanterelles on crackers. Couldn't ask for this to be in a better spot 11 years out.

Big southern style Chardonnay lots of tropical things going on. But finishing focused and full on his minerality. Big shot

The cork was wet roughly half way through so this may be one of those bottles which are slightly corked to make the wine a bit dull but not show any clear faults.
