Wow.  This bottle is probably still on the retail shelves for under $25.  It is amazing.  Everyone at the table was oohing and ahhing over it.  And it has decades of life left if you can keep your hands off.  Light golden in color.  The nose is awesome.  Pineapple, minerals, slight peach and what I thought was thyme (?).  On the palate, this is slightly sweet.  Amazing energy.  Wonderful texture; slightly oily slightly sinewy with juicy acidity.  Long finish.  Served with fried pickles stuffed with pub cheese and chiplote mayo (a very difficult match) this handled it in stride and was awesome.  Fantastic wine and value.
