This is restrained to the point of being all but mute and it requires aggressive swirling to liberate the airy and cool yet clearly ripe aromas of various white flowers, citrus and spice elements. There is once again excellent volume and concentration as well as markedly more minerality if somewhat less powerful broadshouldered flavors that possess fine mid-palate density, all wrapped in a gorgeously long, complex and strikingly harmonious finish. While this too is very clearly built-to-age, it’s not so imposing that it couldn’t be enjoyed after 5-ish years. (93-96)/2029+
