Bright old gold color. Fruity, citrusy, earthy aromas and flavors of delicate fruit scents - dried strawberries, nectarines, lemon pith, and dried canvas - gravel with a lightly tannic, tart, dry full body and a warming, complex, breezy finish with firm, cottony tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor.
