Review

Bright, greentinged gold. Sexy aromas of poached pear, peach pit and smoky minerals on the nose, with anise and sweet butter qualities coming up with aeration. Lush, waxy lemon curd and orchard fruit flavors pick up smokiness with air, along with notes of iodine and vanilla. Juicy pear and tangerine flavors cling on the impressively long, sappy finish, which echoes the lees and anise qualities.
