I had meant to open this with food, but we were starting to drink reds, and I wanted to open this earlier. And the food was still being prepared, so we drank this as a cocktail. It was very good that way, but luckily, there was a glass (or at least a few ounces left) to try with food. Even better. Light golden in color. The nose is nice with lemon cream and slight vanilla. It took a few minutes and then really picked up. On the palate, this is crisp with good acidity. Plenty of depth. Lemon cream and slight vanilla again. Good finish. This is young and probably could use more air. The last glass from the bottle was the best and paired excellently with some Cream of Broccoli soup. Should easily have another decade left to mature.
