This took some time to open and showed a better on day 2. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with smoke, minerals butterscotch, and a touch of grapefruits. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, the minerality comes thru along with some citrus. Very clean finish. This drinks nicely on its own but much better with some food to bring out the subtleties. Salmon or heavier seafood dishes would work well. Drink over the next three to five years. There is an upside to cellaring.
