(B) Chilled from the bottle, the wine was a bit light and closed. Grapefruit and cut grass with minimal acidity. However, as the bottle warmed, a nice spice deleveloped in the mid-palate, with some interesting tropical fruit notes and some white pepper. Drank wonderfullly with fresh seafood, struggled on its own. Hold.
Clear pale yellow. Very muted nose with almost nothing on it. Great acidity and minerality. Would like to have waited a few years and see this as I feel like it is pretty shut down. Good structure though. Even with how closed it is I am really enjoying this.
Second bottle of a three pack. Because the first bottle I had had of this was initially very closed, I decanted this for one hour, then put it back in the bottle to slow-ox for five hours until I brought it to dinner with friends. Unike that first bottle, it was delicious right out of the gate. Bright citrus, mint, some white flower notes on the nose. These continued on the palate were they were underpinned by a subtly spicy, exotic backbone. This is a wine with great structure and a long, smooth finish. A classy wine that everyone at the table loved. Glad to have one more, though will probably let it sleep a couple years. And next time, I won't bring it to dinner with friends, so I can linger over it myself!!
