This is frankly oaky on the nose but lovely notes of flowers, citrus, Asian pear and bitter melon make a strong showing as well. Rather tight and firm on entry, this shows nice restraint but does not lack richness. There’s real depth here with the acid and mineral elements of the wine keeping things fresh and focused. Leesy oak notes add layers of buffering material with the crisp, ripe sweet apple and tart peach flavors. The finish shows liveliness with good flavor persistence to the fresh, clean fruit that’s supported by a nice base of wood spice. Lovely cut and persistence on the finish even if the oak is hanging in there until the final moment. 91pts
