Dinner at Mom's House: The color is golden yellow. The nose is an expressive blend of lemon, orange zest, and pear with a hint of smoke. On the palate this is little heavier than I expected (tending towards thick and syrupy) but with intense flavors of lemon, pear, and honey. I didn't really get any minerality this time. Well balanced. The finish is very long. A very nice wine that is probably past peak, but drinking very well.
A really nice bottle of wine. I was planning to use this to make risotto, but after one taste my wife insisted that I find another wine for the risotto. Oak is present, but is very well integrated. This is perfectly balanced (just enough acidity to keep it lively) and very smooth on the palate. A slight minerality peaks through the fruit. Paired well with a very basic risotto (made with vegetable/mushroom stock and the only other flavors being saffron and permegiano). Probably near peak now, but should drink well for at least another five years given the fruit and balance.
