Med gold color. Somewhat shy nose upon opening (served too cold?), but opened up gracefully after 20+ minutes in the glass. Fruits, flowers, honey. Full bodied and slightly viscous palate. Outstanding!
Med gold color. Floral, some spices, nuttiness, smoke. More expressive nose than the '95 that it was tasted next to, but slightly less memorable palate. You could definitely see the family resemblance with the '95.
