On the nose, the wine displays oaky aromas, walnuts, figs, demerara sugar and hints of caramel intertwined with spicy, cigar box notes, according to the company. The palate is smooth, with mocha and honeyed notes on the entry. Crisp acidity carries the wine to its long and textured finish.
Recommended food pairings: Figs, almonds, pecorino, apple pie, Comté, Cornish game hens, pecan pie or crème brûlée.
