This leads with a powerful toasted-oak overlay to the ripe fruit tones of yellow melon, grilled apple and peach preserves. The mouthfeel is round and full, with a slightly pithy texture that lends some structure to the robust palate. Medium acidity keeps the richness in check, while a pleasant minty afterthought dances through the close. Drink now–2020.
