Reticent nose of smoked nuts, particularly macadamia and almond with the signature crushed apricot core. The wine opens on the palate slowly with the oily texture taking first attention before the slightly muted palate unfolds. Off-sweet with good intensity, I have to believe this has the stuffing to become something pretty though it is extremely reserved today. Opens up with a bit of aeration but it's quite dumb at the moment. 5 years ago this also began slowly but opened up over time. I have little doubt this wine is going to emerge in a few years as a sum greater than its parts. (92pts FCM)
