Review

Medium-light golden yellow color; attractive, forward, intense, pear and baked apple aroma with hints of citrus, butterscotch, and tropical fruit; full body; forward, rich, crisp, citrusy, green apple flavors with good depth and showing some complexity; well balanced and firmly structured; lingering aftertaste. Fruit and oak are well proportioned and nicely balanced. Very highly recommended.
