Curious on the nose with hints of orange peels, resin and a dusty, floral aroma, the 2004 Gaston Horchar shows a subdued fruit and floral quality that's faded from the 2003. Flickers of orange and fresh apple brighten a palate that's yeasty and warm like fino sherry. Round and rich with an umami-laden finish.
