There are subtle notes of cocoa, white chocolate and straw in the first whiffs after the pour; aeration adds aromas of tar, gum, parchment and grass. The palate entry is intensely vegetal and tobacco-like; midpalate finds tastes of uncooked asparagus, sweet oak, light toffee and skimmed milk. Finishes elegantly, smooth and semisweet. A class act.
