(from 35 to 40 year old vines). This is also quite ripe, in fact the mostly yellow orchard fruit aromas play right on the edge of being exotic while combining with the usual floral, pear and discreet spice nuances. There is outstanding concentration to the extract-rich medium weight plus flavors that display solid power and punch before concluding in a mouth coating and almost painfully intense finish that offers superb persistence.
