Tasting Notes

"Find a layered nose which is overall light and vibrant, but can be a bit sharp. Initial notes of citrus peel, along with light vanillins and a bouquet of fresh fruits are discovered. The palate offers honey, as well as more citrus fruits, prunes, oak, and a faint spiciness adding depth. A moderately spicy and hot finish also offers dark red fruits and raisins"
