these 375 mL bottles are wayyyy too small.

Nice bright gold in color with a hint of green still, Nose of honey, chrysanthanum, floral, pear, but rather lacking in fruit. On the palate, it is very similar, but what was there was great. Rich, thick, dense and yet nicely acidic (thought perhaps a bit low on that front) to keep things very fresh. LONG persistence. Maybe it's already moved into the dumb phase. well, that is what the rest of the case will show.

Patience, this thing is amazing!!!! Still get a sense it's holding something back but man is this thing impressive. The focus and scale of the wine is something to see. Just impressive!

Needed a bit of a dessert wine tonight to calm down. Nice cool weather outside and still disturbed by all that is going on around Boston.

Nice wine, does not demand attention but man do you know you got quality in your hands. Still thick, structural, floral stone fruits, and impressive. Long persistence and just pretty. Nice wine for the night
