Drinking fine from 375; no signs of excessive age. Plumps and thickens the second day, showing more suguary heft and lusciousness. Just 12.5% abv, in contrast to the great sweet wines to the south and west. Drink or hold.
This seemed light and almost fading a bit. I can't believe that but it was still quite fine, just not unctuous or mouthcoating like I remember. This was open in the reefer for a night before I tried it. Very much a tropical wine, sweet apricot, papaya and tangerine notes with pumpkin pie spice on the finish. Dried up a bit on the finish, not at all mouthcoating, but still long in the finish. Just long and dry, not long and thick. I wonder if this should be consumed in the next 3-5 years? Not at all oxidized or baked, so my concern would be just due to it aging and becoming unbalanced. Drink any time.
Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): Light golden to rim; tons of honeyed golden apple, apricot, ripe peach; sweet palate, honeycomb, sugary, good acid, not Riesling but high acid varietal, botrytis, cleansing finish; delicious.
