Fruity yet firm on the nose with lovely pear, apple, and apricot aromas framed with perfumed oak and topped with hints of tobacco and pollen. Vivid and bright on entry with tons of acidity supporting fresh apple, pineapple and under-ripe apricot flavors. There's a hint of creaminess adding some softness on the mid-palate, though the acidity remains rather sharp adding a rich lemon curd note to the back end, which recedes rather quickly on the finish revealing a pithy, dried citrus peel note over hints of almonds and steely minerality. Super value. 89pts Acidity: Medium High Perceived Sweetness: Low Oak: Medium Low Spicy Flavors: Medium Savory Flavors: Low Fruity Flavors: Medium High Intensity of Flavor: Medium High Weight in Mouth: Medium
