Fairly intense nose delivers a smoky and reductive entry, followed by apple, pear, and vanilla aromas. It is medium+ bodied on the palate with vibrant acids, clean fruit and mouthfeel, and very nice aroma replays. Toasty and spicy notes linger on the long finish. Enjoy over the next 5-7 years. Tasted Oct/2019.
