(From 2010 Vintage) Slow to unfold, with spicy floral, anise, fig and honeydew melon notes, this rich and full-bodied version is most intriguing on the finish, where the smoke and fig impart a deep persistent finish.
(From 2011 Vintage) Fresh-baked apple pie, toasted brioche, and pine nuts laced with citrus zest compose a complex bouquet. Elements of rich lemon custard coat the palate, braced with traces of white tea leaf and cedar. A round, juicy finish suggests surface streaks of slate and subtle white sage drifting on an enticingly dense and unrelenting citrus undercurrent.
