Big nose with tropical fruit, oaky, buttery and nutty notes. Big body, rich fruit with maturity, fresh acidity and long aromatic finnish.

Nicely oaked. Notes of lemon curd, honey, and marzipan. Balanced sugar and acid; this would age beautifully. Really good stuff.

Tons of caramel, toast, and butter. Golden hue with lots of oak. Lemon zest on the nose.
