Bright, green-tinged gold. Powerful orchard fruit and orange marmalade aromas and flavors, with intense spice and anise qualities and a touch of agave. Deeply pitched but lively pear and lemon curd flavors pick up spiciness with air, along with a sweet butter nuance. The rather smoky finish shows outstanding clarity and resonating spiciness. For a big wine this is quite lithe.
