Judicious new oak brings out a gorgeous and haunting hint of herbs and spices: the perfect complexity. Notes of caramel apple. More volume on the palate with dense white fruit and oak richness, but it never comes close to cloying. Much like its un-oaked sibling, it remains intensely light and floats across palate. Hints of smoke return on the finish and mingle with the mouthwatering acidity. Fascinating and cohesive blend of power, toast and absolute elegance. I'll dream about this finish tonight.
