Very primary right now, but really delicious with ripe yellow fruited flavours - quince, apricot and golden raisins - combining seamlessly with touches of honey and wool in a very polished, elegant package. There's still a lot of baby fat and sweetness here, and the balance and structure suggest this will be amazing over the long haul.
At 12 years of age this is still very young and unevolved. Wooly lemon, ripe yellow fruit, sweet but not overpoweringly so (still well into the dessert range), some botrytis, and good acidity. Day 2, no change. Let this one sit for a while.
Dessert level sweetness, and just developing complexity. Honeysuckle, wool, wax and ripe peaches all came out on the nose. There's the barest hint of smokiness emerging on the palate, and the sweetness is properly balanced by acidity. To be honest it was a shame to drink this now, as there is so much more to be gained from further aging.
