Tasted blind, this wine had a light gold center and clear rims. The high- nose of apple cider, ginger, lemons, and honey was nice but a bit funky.
In the mouth, this wine was quite viscous and rich with lovely fine-grained acidity. The length was fantastic. It got better and better in the glass and in the end was quite majestic. I would have to say the mouth-feel of this wine is amazing and special.
However, the slightly oxidative note suggested by my apple cider description was a bit distracting. Thus, this very expensive bottle merited an impressive but not a superlative score.
Given the above, I see no reason to save this wine for later.
Beautifully constructed wine. Never knew white wines could taste so good. Explosive nutty fragrance. Creamy texture of butterscotch on the palate. Opened up nicely over the next couple of hours. I suspect this powerhouse could last another couple of decades. Gorgeous!
Words cannot do this wine justice. It is light on the tongue, but has a weight and intensity such that even after you have swallowed it you can still chew it like a steak. It is a model of paradox. The brilliance is almost overwhelming. This wine is the appetizer, main course, dessert, cheese platter, and after-dinner conversation. A++
