Tasting Notes

An exceptionally primary nose only reluctantly offers up its ripe but attractively fresh aromas of various white orchard fruit, floral, spice and discreet citrus nuances. There is outstanding volume to the imposingly-scaled flavors that display first-rate richness while managing to avoid undue heaviness on the powerful, dense and hugely long finish where once again a touch of bitter lemon appears. This will need to add depth to merit the top end of my projected range though the underlying material appears to be present such that it could do just that.
