Golden, maybe a bit deeper in color, clear and bright. The nose has lemons, lemon drop candies, spice and slight vanilla note. Full bodied with a slightly oily texture. Nice acidity. On the palate, lemons, lemon curd, with vanilla. Long finish. This has more depth and complexity than the 2012 consumed at alongside. It will continue to mature for the next seven to ten years and drink well for another seven to ten after that if well stored. Great on its own, this will work well with pork chops or roasted chicken.
