"The nose offers bundles of hay in a barn, with grapefruit, orange pith, and aloe. The palate is along the lines of what you'd expect with an agricole -- grassy and herbaceous with spice, black pepper, a bitter zing and a waxy-honey quality. The finish is clean and quick, ending with a spicy and herbal side at the forefront."
