($38) Bright golden yellow. Initially closed nose quickly opens to show varietally accurate scents of green apple, ripe apricot and baked pear, with hints of yellow plum and vanilla. Quite fat on entry, then mineral-driven on the palate, with terrific depth and weight to the ripe orchard fruit flavors. Persistent, nuanced finish features dried peach, Golden Delicious apple and vanilla. Quite thick in texture but has the balance to partly hide its 14.5% alcohol. This may yet merit a higher score if it develops greater complexity with another year of bottle aging.
