Brilliant copper to golden color. The aromatics are complex and ever evolving with aeration offering scents of roasted nuts, baked green apple, sourdough, dried papaya, and mineral. The palate echoes the nose and delivers a multilayered attack of spice, oak, earth and preserved fruit.

Offers a creamy feel, with date, salted caramel and honey-roasted walnut notes out front, followed by singed sandalwood and fresh ginger accents. Drink now.óJ.M.
