Pale yellow colour. Somewhat musky, mineral-driven, gasoline nose. Some floral notes as well, but not too much fruit there. On the palate, a pleasant smooth texture; not bitingly acidic but certainly enough. Quite a bit of oak, and other secondary notes such as dried brown fruit, although strangely the acidity is still quite fresh and green. Lots of gasoline. Medium finish. Good, but not too memorable.
Pale greenish yellow; sl oxidized nose, much older bouquet than color would lead one to expect, but not corked- just tired, light caramel, figs under the "sherry"; under ripe melon, tart damson plum and gooseberry flavors, nice tart green apple acidity, balance ok; finish veers back to an old wine profile, lingering oaky, sl vanillin character, no fruit flavors left.
