With just 30 cases imported, this is a tough find but worth the hunt, as it will certainly continue to evolve and flourish over the next 10 years, at least. Aromas and flavors of baked apple, peach preserves, honeycomb and orange oil abound, with herbal glimmers of white tea and honeysuckle in the background adding depth and interest. The palate is lush and round, yet pure in character, with ample acidity to keep the flavors from feeling overdone. Hints of honey-roasted nuts and sweet spice grace the long finish.
