A deft touch of wood sets off markedly riper aromas of dried yellow fruit and hazelnut nuances that flirt with the exotic. There is good richness but also plenty of punch to the medium-bodied flavors that exude a discreet minerality onto the saline and moderately dry finish. This should be approachable young but reward 4 to 6 years of cellar time too if desired. Score: 88 Points; Tasted: Jun 15, 2014; Drink: 2017+; Issue: 55; Allen Meadows - Burghound
