Although this is lacking in fruit at mid-palate and in the finish, this is still a solid offering. Age has shined a spotlight on the toasty mineral elements, and it has deepened the golden color in the glass. It's a beautiful wine to look at in the glass. Gooseberry, marzipan, peach and apricot nectar. Some antique oak elements in the bouquet and the finish. Mom would have loved this one. (= Worth Seeking Out)
Bright 18k gold. Nose of melon, overripe white pommes and musk, soft palate of candied pears, peaches, and waxy bitterness. The finish is medium-long. To me this is like an under-concentrated dessert wine. Drank with chicken oriental stir fry, a reasonable match.
