($55) Bright medium yellow. Yellow plum, pineapple, peach and flowers on the musky, aromatic nose; much fruitier than the Hudson sample that preceded it. Supple, sweet, aromatic and mouthfilling, with juicy acids perking up the flavors of mirabelle and peppermint. Not at all an outsized wine but has no shortage of volume. Finishes rather backward and serious, with a solid spine and good spicy persistence. I picked up a smoky note here, not unlike that shown by the Durell example, as well as a tannic edge.Author: Stephen Tanzer
