The manipulations this wine underwent have been shrugged off and this is much more harmonious than it was when I saw it just after bottling. There is now a hint of secondary fruit in evidence though the airy, spicy, fresh and wonderfully pure and complex nose is still largely primary in basic character as it leads to detailed, vibrant and sweet flavors that culminate in a finish that is distinctly linear, indeed almost a bit strict at present. Still, the transparency here is marvelous and while this is clearly still on the way up, it's more on the order of 5 years away from its peak. In a word, lovely.
