Bright yellow. Pungent aromas of pear and peach nectar, with complicating notes of smoky lees and lemon pith. Mineral-accented pit and orchard fruit flavors shows impressive depth and clarity, picking up spiciness and a touch of bitter quinine on the back half. Rich but balanced and fresh, finishing with excellent clarity and persistent spiciness.
