This is showing quite precise aromatics, decidedly floral and savory. Cracked peppercorn and licorice accents over plummy, jammy fruit are paired with vanilla and wood spice. A bit surprising on entry with a rather light, fresh feel and underpinned with dry, slightly grainy tannins. The early flavors are noticeably influenced by the Viognier here, though by mid-palate, the peach fades into a core of blackberry and plum fruit, showing flashes of graphite, coconut and light note of peppercorn. Modest if slightly dry tannins emerge again on the moderately long finish which shows good fruit and a more pronounced toasty oak quality. 89 pts
