"The nose is very grassy with hints of eucalyptus, tobacco, banana and hay. The heat comes on the palate much stronger than on the nose. Bright citrus brightens the char characteristics with orange zest and is followed by apricot. The finish is medium short with salinity holding up the last hints of vanilla and honeysuckle."
