Big ripe fruit aromas with notes of spice. On the palate tropical and stone fruit flavors with lemon citrus, savory with hints of vanilla spice. Medium finish, good acidity ending with creamy fruit character. Tasting Sample.

Slightly overrating this, I think. For me, it fits the profile I wanted. A slight bit of butter, but also some very crisp fruit. Not too creamy.

Pleasant surprise. Nose indicated a fair amount of oak coming my way but I was wrong. Very balanced with a some depth.
