Lithe, graceful, packed full of sunny apricot and apple, lemon, honey, mint, smoke and cool stone. Still packing a wallop on day 2 and would develop for a decade or more I’m sure.

Delicate and fruity and mineral/creamy at the same time with just the right amount of age.

A bit shut down at this point. Quite dull automatically but an hour in the decanter helped wake it up. This will be sublime in a few years!
