Immediately smells like maple syrup, breakfast sausage, and espresso. With just a little air, the fig jam, red current, and orange brandy fruit aromas come out. The aromas are very rich and well defined right now, making it a pleasure to smell in the glass. On the palate the entry is very broad and full of fruit. The wine remains juicy into the mid-palate and then a surprising amount of acidity kicks in, along with the spicy coriander, tightening the wine on the finish. It is incredibly generous wine and even greater length will emerge in time.
