Deep and intense. Brooding and stunning, intense with honey, sweet oak, but enough acidity to keep everything dancing along. Yum

Could not be a fresher more perfect example of this wine. Still young and vibrant. Perfect with fois gras. Wow!

Honeycomb, dried apricot, fresh ginger, pineapple upside down cake, orange marmalade. Cloves on the back palate, nice viscosity, medium weight and acidity, quite a treat. Drinking beautifully now.

Golden amber color, carmel and vanilla nose, creamy palate with baked pear, baked apple, fresh starfruit. Very warm and comforting.
