The initially sumptuous notions of peach are quickly tinged by a more intriguing note of smoke. Honeyed notes join in before they explode on the palate into a rich, lemon-caramel flavor. This has concentration and verve and cuts its sweetness admirably, so much so that this becomes a lip-smacking tightrope walk of lush, sweet caramel and tight, spritzy lemon zest. Exciting.
