This opens with a rather intense asparagus note over sweeter braised celery tones. There is an emerging floral note but of a sturdy sort recalling carnations and the vegetal component takes on a fave bean note. Nuances of water chestnut, smoke, and waxy lipstick emerge with air. Freah and coiled on the attack with a burst of yellow cherry fruit right up fron then a very mineral mid-palate with excellent cut and precision. The back end remains quartzy with notes of almond milk and lime zest leading to a finish with echoes of dried peach, popcorn, ham and some smoky tobacco and pecan notes. Pretty interesting stuff and certainly not for everyone but a lovely bottle. 92pts

This is a brilliant wine, beautifully sweet, oxidized nose with honey, honeysuckle and toasted almonds but a completely dry mouth. The balance and freshness is impeccable. Read about my experience of tasting it here: http://twosisterswinetripping.com/2012/07/the-temple-of-my-faith/
