TASTING NOTE: Bright amber color. Complex aromas of waxy honeycomb, spicy poached pears and peaches, white potpourri, and salty buttery cashew brittle follow through on a silky, round entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with great balance and depth. Finishes with a long, lingering wave of flavor with caramel apple, anise, cinnamon raisin bread and floral talc evanescences. Impressively rich and smooth. Exceptional.
