Golden in color.  The nose is a bit musty with slight sugary notes.  With air it cleans a bit and shows lychees.  A different bottle opened a couple of days before also showed this mustiness and the thought of TCA was there.  Leaving it for two days, the wine cleaned up nicely, so that might be an issue with this bottling.  On the palate, a wonderful oily texture.  Some orange peel.  Turns slightly bitter on the finish.  Overall, this is a complex wine.  Quite food friendly.  It is a bit sweet but just a bit.
