Bright golden-yellow. Pure but brooding nose offers cherry-almond, vanillin oak and some honeyed high tones; rather dominated by its oak element today. Then generous, fat, sweet and full in the mouth, with a distinctly glyceral quality leavened by ripe, nicely integrated acidity. Big, rich and large-scaled but a bit youthfully monolithic today. Finishes suave, seamless and very long, with a slight tannic edge and a lingering flavor of apricot preserves. This wine will need time to show its complexity.
