Birthday wine from Tim. Concentrated lemon-gold color in the glass. Slightly reductive (struck match, burnt rubber). Highly complex nose of saffron and wax (botrytis), chilled honeydew and cantaloupe, melon custard (even a suggestion of durian), dried orange peel, faint candied rose petals (terpenes), fresh king trumpet mushrooms (some development, but early in it), and a powerful impression of wet stones and crushed rock. There's some viscosity in the mouth. Alcohol is slightly elevated. Seems around 13%. Elevated acidity, strong, clean, and mostly tartaric. Modest phenolic bitterness with a sweet radish impression. On the finish it stops surprisingly short given the intensity on the mid palate, but this is a classic example where the length of the finish shouldn't determine quality. The complex and balanced nature of the nose carried this for me. A real treat!
