Took about 2 hours to open up, but really amazing. Fresh cream mixed with just a hint of butterscotch and pine needles.

This was an absolute treat. Lucky to Have had a handful of vintages of this wine. Golden color, great length and a bight and beautiful acidity. Firing on all cylinders! #timetraveling

Like fresh fruit that has ripened. This wine still holds tons of minerality to support it's age. Smell sweet due to age. Minerality to make for structure. Then a finish that has a supple sweet fruit and carries for days. Damn!

So young taste like out of barrel. Everything so amped up. Almost hard to drink.

Botrytis nose. Nothing wrong with wine just style wasn't as minerally. It had a beautiful long finish.
