Intensely aromatic this is both floral and herbal at the same time with lots of almost medicinal fennel seed and coriander notes layered under white flowers and polleny notes. There’s some oak here and that adds to the spiciness of the nose and help to frame the core of apple and quince fruit that wrapped in dusty nuance. Faintly sweet on entry, this is powerfully put together with blazing acids that add great cut to the palate. the fruit is fresh and bold with layers of green apple, papaya, fig, and tart plum flavors that power through the long finish. the oak adds some nuanced spice on the palate and a slightly nutty cast to the backend and through the moderately long finish but shows up mostly on the nose at this point. The flavors in the mouth take on a honied character with air, along with a hint of cigar box spice that adds further complexity. Additional bottle age should help round this out and add another layer of complexity to what is already an exciting wine. This needs some rich food to help balance the power and acid. This would be an interesting pairing with BBQ ribs that are not sauced but just subtly spiced and a bit spicy. 91pts
