Really impeccable. First time I've had the '05 in a few years and it may not be ascending but it's certainly singing. Color in the stem is taking on an advanced golden/pinkish hue. Honeycomb, oyster shell, lemon oil. Oak is all but resolved.

Honey, flowers, stone fruits. Toasty oak takes a back seat. Concentrated and supple full body.
