Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - Peach to golden apple nose with some rhubarb bite, mushroomy earth, vanilla, smoke, peat and something almost malty.
Dry, full bodied and rich on the round palate with gentle smooth moussé. Fruit is peachy but not very intense at all. Oak treatment and autolysis are way more prominent. Hazelnuts, vanilla and again something malty rich. Long finish.
Not that balanced performance at the moment. Rich, open and approachable for sure, but the fruit isn't keeping up with the other components. Needs time to find balance. Good stuff anyway.
