Aromas are of bruised apple, pineapple, honey, cream, vanilla, toasted almond, smoke, and clove. On the palate the fruit is dull and oxidized, and smoke, cream, and almond takes over. The acidity is medium low, and combined with the lack of fruit and some phenolic bitterness, the wine comes across as heavy and clumsy. Oak takes over the finish. Tasted June 2016.
