Nose has (light) cider vinegar, over-ripe yellow apples, apple mash, wet sawdust, over-ripe papaya (?) and sun scorched earth.

Palate has sweet yellow apple, oxidized apple slice, dried pineapple with a long finish and what I'm perceiving as some tannins. A very weighty wine, with grip on the palate and our minds tonight. Quite interesting for wine nerds!

Cork pulled for slow oxidation, 11H.

Paired to a French dish this evening, chicken, apples and cremé à la normande (cream, onion, mushroom & calvados), wow smiles all around tonight.
