Super elegant and concentrated particularly when you consider the American oak used to barrel ferment.

Lemon cupcake. Sweet with a little backbone of lemon zest. More oak than I remember. Full body. Could see it aging but we drank it. :)

Rich and supple. Just an apertif before a Monte Bello red vertical tasting. Fantastic.

Hint of butter, lemon, and fresh grass. 30 second finish. Very well structured.
