Medium amber/straw color; some sediment seen. Comes out swinging with ripe yellow fruit, light baking spice, and candied walnut aromas. No wallflower, the tropical fruit note becomes orchard fruit, which emerges as the dominant aroma as the acute fruitiness takes over and won't let go; nice. Entry is keenly fruity apples, pears) and ripe, as well as spicy (cinnamon); midpalate is terrifically scrumptious, apple-like, baked, pastry-like, and crisp. Finishes intensely spiced and apple tart-like.
