    December 9, 2011 - 2011 Simple Dinner Series 12 :: A night with CDPs (Jade Palace Seafood Restaurant, The Forum Shopping Mall, Orchard Road): Alcohol :: 7%
    Popped 5hrs in advanced. This deep golden liquid display intensely sweet aromas of honey coated dried apricot and peaches along with autumn leaves and Bortrytis note. Still rather primary on the palate, deeply concentrated with beautiful balance. However, this is actually quite monolithic now, not expressive and only offer sweet intense fruits on the palate that almost viscous in texture. The finish is long and clean though. I don't know how long it needs to take to evolve, but for sure will be more than a decade.
