Very clean palate, round, gentle pear fruit with a hint of wool and a hint of old oak. This is round and smooth, rather quiet, not much cut, the acidity not especially prominent. Overall, clearly at peak and harmonious, if not especially exciting. With R before the Drunken Monkey.
Update: a pour remained in the glass overnight, completely exposed to air. Twelve hours later, the following morning, there was no oxidation nor degradation, the palate now showing brisk acidity and good energy, much more lively than the prior evening, with a nice amount of yellow fruit on the palate and a very long finish. Suggests to me that this wine would have benefited from a good decant.
