PnP, served non-blind. Excellent fill, cork soaked 1/4. Medium gold, still good reflections. Consistent with prior bottles, this is fully mature, with acids waning. But that's not to say that there's nothing to enjoy here, quite the opposite in fact. Full in the mouth, with enough acids to keep the finish clean, rewarding. Layers of mature orchard fruits, with engaging spice and fruit pie accents. I savored each glass, and look forward to my final bottle in the coming 12 months. On the drier side of off-dry, which was most welcome. 13,5% abv
PnP consumed over two nights, with night #1 showing better; cork in exc cond, 1/4 soaked. Fully mature, medium gold color, opening with yellow apples, honey, earthen funk and schist. Medium(+) body, with waning acids, but still enough to get the job done. Avg(+) persistence and a classy mouthfeel. I'd have enjoyed this more a few years ago, which is to say that I will drink my remaining two bottles in the coming year or two. 13,5% abv
Honey colored. Nose of sweet wildflowers -- nice. Popped & poured. Medium bodied with some sweetness, but tight and acidic on the first night; really not particularly enjoyable. Vacu-vined and finished 2 nights later, when the wine was excellent. Nice floral nose, balanced acidity/sweetness, notes of pear and apricot with a long finish. Drink or hold.
