Displays focused aromas of lemon curd, spice and dried apricot. Full-bodied, medium sweet and quite oily, with a lemon rind and spice aftertaste. Long and racy for the vintage.
(From 2010 Vintage) Richly textured, with an opulent feel. Concentrated, the fruit buried in the dense flavors. It makes for a big, powerful wine, with long aging future.
