Appearance: slightly hazy, deep lemon, long legs.
Nose: clean, youthful, medium+ intensity of popcorn, mineral, ripe melon, hint of vanilla, straw mat, cashews.
Palate: dry, med+ integrated acid, HIGH warm alcohol, full body, med+ mineral, ripe melon, lemon, popcorn, vanilla, LONG waxy finish.
Conclusion: very good (93+). It's drinkable now but I'd much rather leave it along for another 5~7 years. Minerality stood out from start to finish but not enough to cover the overwhelming alcohol on palate. Hint of ripe peach began to surface after about an hour in glass.
The sheer concentration and minerality, which gave the wine a long, long finish, made the wine most interesting but the alcohol (a whopping 15.6%) kinda took away the balance I craved in a perfect wine. Hopefully more complexity will develop with time in cellar. For now, not with Mr. Parker on this one....
