After staring at this bottle on the rack for a few months, I decided I couldn't wait to put the poor bottle out of its misery so I took it over to a Holiday Open House at my wife's co-worker's home. OK, the wine is finally doing what it was probably meant to do all along. It's finally in balance -- nice acid, but in balance with the rest of the wine. Delicious layers of pear, lemon and lime with a great minerality (limestone) that has never shown its face before for me. Nice finish too. If only I had waited to drink all of these bottles until now. <sigh> 90 pts.
Gold in color, again with a good amount of sediment in neck. Nose is nice with toast, butter, lemon/lime comes out with a little air. On the palate this is nice and crisp. Toasty oak, tart fruit, and lemon custard or keylime pie shows up. This is my last bottle and they've all been very enjoyable.
