great stuff, had an interesting / conflicting combo of butter / lanolin alongside really nice acidity -- not bracing but clearly there for keep the buttery mouthfeel in check, some decent citrus, not much in the way of minerals per se, this simply lacked the punch / density of material to score higher, I wish this was $90 instead of $125-150, QPR is a little tough to swallow
still quite a pale lemon. fragrance of white peaches, a little talc and white flowers. medium weight, has softened and broadened with age. still a nice zest to the finish. fruits taking on some aged spicy characters and moved away from the primary spectrum. drinking well but I suspect past its peak.
Young. Not decanted and took 1/2 bottle of wine to begin to open. Based on this bottle, and equivalent provenance, I would recommend 3-5 more years depending on whether you prefer youthful or developing character.
Raid Len's Cellar #12: Chalk, lemon, grapefruit. Nice boldness on the palate which still showing restraint. Lightly honeyed edges give it some warmth and approachability. Will age well if you have a good bottle.
