The wine opens with spice driven aromas of nutmeg and toasted pine nuts with a strong undercurrent of custard derived from extended lees contact. As the wine breaths, aromas of lemon zest, cider apples, and oak spice begin to emerge. The palate is focused, and framed by a taut vein of acidity that carries the wine to a mineral laden finish. This wine has the structure to evolve beautifully in the bottle for several years to come.
