A brilliant yellow with an intense nose of cooked brown pear and pineapple. The oak aged nuances were of caramel, toast and biscuit. There was a hint of a toasted nut that added a certain earthen profile, almost sulfurous, that married quite well. The heavyweight palate had the cooked fruits at the forefront, but balanced by an acidity that kept the wine well-structured. Great length with a more earthen-type finish. Enjoy now, but will hold.
