"(aged for five months in a combination of French and American oak): Light yellow. Spicy, smoke-accented aromas of pear, orange and honeydew, with vanilla and anise accents. Lush and expansive on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors that are lifted by tangy acidity. Smoothly plays richness off vivacity smoothly and finishes with excellent power and length."
