This is rich, lush even, offering honey, coffee, grilled nut and citrus elements. Firms up, with the structure coming into play from midpalate to the finish. Enjoyable now, but there's no rush. Drink now through 2020. 700 cases imported.–BS

Deep yellow. Powerful, smoky nose shows an exotic quality to the ripe apple, pear and guava aromas. Round, velvety and lush, with deep, spice-tinged orchard fruit flavors and a hint of yellow plum complemented by a musky, smoky quality. Finishes lush, spicy and long, with an echo of toasted bread.
