Review

Greenish gold. Musky aromas of poached pear, vanilla, crushed stone and nutmeg. Concentrated, fleshy and velvety, communicating an impression of richness to its orchard fruit and peach flavors without coming across as ponderous. The vanilla note returns on the broad, long, intensely spicy finish. This has unlikely energy for such a rich wine and is drinking well now.
