Not quite three years after the last note, this has entered the downhill side of life. Now a pretty gold color that looks its age. Still elegant, but not as fresh as before, with less lemon and more cream and caramel. Aging gracefully, but without the burst of acidity to keep things interesting over the entire bottle. A bottle to be shared among several.
Opened for about an hour and drank over an hour...Nose of lemon, cream and some toast. Palate has some nice acid, slightly overly oaked, lemon again. The acid and oak are out of balance but provide for a bright and unctuous mouthfeel at the same time. The finish is decently long and full. Very nice wine but too young, will follow up in another few years as Ted Lemon has crafted these wines to develop and evolve over a long period.
