Big, bold, and and ready for action. Kind of like a mixed martial artist in a shiny, purple leotard. Stone fruit parfait, violets, and a never-ending finish. Tasty but pricey.

From a 375 and still very fresh and youthful. Was expecting a little more development, but thoroughly enjoyed anyway. Lime zest, peach, pineapple and caraway upfront. Finish is long, with petrol and silt. Bright acidity yet round textured and just slightly noticeable alcohol. Should breeze past the 15yr mark. 🍋🍍🏞
