Intense and fruity on the nose, with hints of earth, leaves and peaches. Clean, pure and with a sweetness to the palate; some fire and spice from the elevated alcohol levels, but everything is balanced and in check. A long finish with subtle hints of mushroom and indian spices show hints that this will be superb with some bottle age. Again, fabulous already but will improve. Plenty of umami… spicy, dry and fiery!
