Wow.  This is singing right now.  It seems at peak, but will probably continue to evolve for the next 30 years at least.  Will it get better?  Perhaps.  This was purchased at the winery.  Deep golden in color.  The nose is clean like after a rain.  Even the light petrol has the quality.  A bit of peach and some wet stones as well.  On the palate, this is sweet, but more ripe than botrytis.  Slightly viscous.  Peach with underlying minerality on the palate.  Lots of depth and complexity.  Long finish.  Worked great with deviled eggs actually, but of course it will go with a wide variety of lighter foods and more savory desserts.
