$17, 8%

Kind of in a strange place, with some vanilla coconut pineapple at war with musky honey stonefruit...
Good balance, length, etc. Going to wait another 2+ before trying again.

Hmm.. that does sound funny especially with the 04 vintage being a bit more focused and less ripe. The mustiness makes it almost sound faulty.

It's possible it was a little bit of an off bottle somehow t(hough everyone but me really liked it). Cork was quite damp. We have 4 more of these, so time will tell.
