Bright yellow. Sexy oak, buttery lees, pineapple and a whiff of more tropical fruits on the nose. Supple and round in the middle, with leesy and smoky qualities currently dominating primary fruits. Could use a bit more cut and definition. Began reasonably rich but seemed a bit pinched with aeration.
