Lemony without being citrusy, e.g. it smells more of lemon verbena or citronella than lemon rind. The Francois Frere French oak gives it a kiss of toast and a long creaminess that isn’t heavy.
Black cherries, cherry blossom, lavender honey, and orange rind are beautifully melded in the aroma. The mouth is creamy, bright, and has pleasing gentle warmth that carries on for minutes.
Tremendous fruit flavors and textural depth. The list of aroma descriptors and flavors is long and includes white strawberries, clover, spearmint, beeswax, green hay, and apricot nectar.
Dark, crisp fruit is enveloped in a smoky sweet blanket that is hard to forget. Evokes sitting around the embers of a dying fire on a cold fall night.
Walks the line between fruit and vegetable, and sweet and savory. The cooler vintage definitely made its imprint on this wine with subtle fresh wax and cherry blossom undertones.
Loaded with deep, dark, blue fruit smells. Underneath the fruit lies a savory salt-cured meat aroma that really gets you salivating. The mouth is round, sweet feeling (though it’s bone-dry), and just plain delicious.
