A medium straw yellow color. Rich nose: slightly smoky yellow stone fruit, sweet basil mint, grilled cashew and talc dust. Fullish, with a resplendent cream texture on the palate: honeyed pear, peach parfait, nutmeg. Oak comes through on the intense, vanilla-infused finish. Abundant fruit character if a bit obvious. Good grip; slightly malic acidity. Will not improve but this will keep. For drinking soon.
