Seductive, toasty scents of brioche and pie crust are upfront on the nose, supported by notes of baked apple, orange oil and melon. The round, plush mouthfeel is soft and richly fruited, with just enough acidity to keep it from feeling too heavy. The palate transitions nicely from flavors of apple pie and creamed pear to woody spice. Drink now.
