Pale straw yellow with glints of green, it’s creamy aromatically but with high notes of lemony fruit. The body is ample and spicy, with ginger, lemon tea, and clove. There’s good freshness underneath these flavors, but the finish is likewise spiced, and on the whole—at least within the first hour or two— the fruit and site seem to take the back seat with the cellar at the wheel. It was more restrained and integrated on Day Two, calmer and more nuanced, suggesting that the wine would profit from a couple of years of bottle age. Pair it now with medium aged cheeses, seafood, and gratins. 14.2% abv (sample)
