(the only one of these 2017s that had been racked and assembled by the time of my visit): Nose muted by a recent second dose of SO2. Broad but light on its feet, with white peach and apple aromas accented by spices and flowers. Not especially fleshy or sweet--or at least it's not in an opulent phase today. From a 1970 planting. (13.2% natural alcohol)

A discreet but not invisible touch of wood sets off the overtly floral-inflected nose of various white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in spice hints. The reasonably concentrated and nicely rich medium-bodied flavors possess better depth on the sappy and lemony finish.
