Saturated yellow gold color. Spicy and floral aromatically, with ginger, daffodils, and lily of the valley blooming amid fresh herbs. Spreading and luscious on the palate, it suggests spiced yellow apple, spice cake, white peaches, Asian pear, all anchored by a kind of laurel savoriness. This is a big, glossy wine with lots of alcohol but also plenty of countervailing interestingness.
