Medium gold. Fruit dominated nose. Notes of citrus, tangerine, apricot, reddish clay, cardamom spice, a little vanilla and some wet stone. Powerful in the mouth, great duet of rich fruit and tangy acidity. Long lasting finish. Good shit.

Medium gold. Medium weight. Notes of lemon, apricot, earth, stones and white acacia flowers. Rich fruit in the mouth. Silky. Fine grained acidity. Feminine and delicate. Sweet fruit dominates this story.

Med gold. Sweet fruity nose. Notes of sweet kiwi, some apricot, wet stone, a little gravel and tan spice. Very rich in the mouth. Acidity and structure soft at first but power up after 3 hours. This was ok. I expected more tho.

Lemon, a hint of peach, green apple on the nose. Soft evolved fruit in the midpalate. Open and fleshy.

Canary gold color. Appropriate color for its age. Quiet nose, quiet in the mouth - even with a few hours of air. Something was not quite right with this bottle as it came across as subdued and light on acidity. It got a little better with air and showed some light aged white burg funk, but not as good as recent bottles. Maybe not well-stored at some point in its life.

Fresh with lifted lemon. Seashells, white flowers. Not powerful but very balanced and approachable. Good.

Incredibly fresh for its age, linear, gun flint, lemon curd, lots of minerals, wild honey.

Yellow gold. Heavy in the glass. Rich nose. Notes of white flowers, apricot, pineapple, river rocks, white spice, earth and a little vanilla. Palate coating in the mouth. Acidity in the background, fruit up front. Long finish. Really good, but had that something missing to call it great.
