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.
Available Starting May 15
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.
The leading aroma is dominated by melted black and red licorice candy smells followed by super-ripe or sun-baked blackberries. The oak contributes a vanilla extract headiness.
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.
