Straw yellow gold. Nice weight. Feminine nose. Notes of lemon, pineapple, tan spice, clay soil and white flowers. Big and rich in the mouth. Nice structure. Medium plus finish. Did great with lots of air. Has improved since last btl a few years back.

Some apple juice/ oxidative notes on the nose, with an underpinning of lemony limestone. The palate is beautifully pure and balanced. Lemon oil, corn and light, steely minerality. The nose isn’t as good as the gorgeous palate. Long and delicious.

Bought on release. Pop and poured. Medium gold and straw color. Nice weight in the glass. Notes of a little lemon, some spice, apricot and gravel. Smooth acidity, nice texture in the mouth. A little chewy in a good way. No signs of premox. This has aged nicely so far and bottles like this should get better with at least 5+ more years of age I suspect.

This was absolutely in great shape with straw gold color, honeyed-lime, pear aromas. Great cut and length with an exceptionally dry, ever so slightly tannic finish. Wonderful
