Tasting note: This is also notably ripe yet remains agreeably fresh and cool with its pretty notes of peach, pear, acacia blossom and hazelnut hints. There is fine volume and mid-palate density to the plump and utterly delicious medium weight flavors that deliver solid depth and length where the finish is trimmed in just enough wood to notice. Note that this easy-to-like effort should drink well young.
