"The nose reveals big vanilla and oak components, with an undertone of fresh dill, saddle-leather, wood smoke, and flan. As it opens, cooked mango and peaches, jasmine, and clove are apparent. On the palate, cooked agave, oak, and smoke provide a trinity of flavors that the secondary notes play off of. Hints of dill carry through, along with white pepper, roasted pumpkin seed, and mamey sapote (a type of tropical-tree fruit). The finish is more smoke, sandalwood, with a slight minerality and a noticeable earthiness. More baking spices carry through and it finally finishes off with a nice marzipan note."
