Vibrant. Citrusy and salty onthe nose, with a touch of vanilla in the background. In the mouth, flavors are of burnt orange and sweet spices. Dry, with plenty of richness and slightly grainy texture. Lingers long in the mouth.
Initial aroma of wax paper and black pepper; aeration stimulates scents of asparagus, broccoli, new leather and herbal butter. The palate entry is spicy and semisweet; the midpalate adds subtle tastes of butter, steamed green vegetables, white rice and light toffee. Finishes satiny smooth and appealingly spicy. A tour de force in balance and harmony.
