Green/gold in color. There is plenty of oak on the nose along with an enticing lemon creme. On the palate, this is very rich. There is a lot of oak, but it seems to start integrating in the glass and no doubt, will continue to do so if well cellared for the next few years. Plenty of lemon and vanilla too. An almost seamless texture which is very nice. Depending on your tastes, this is drinking well now or needs five years. Retail is $60. It will work with richer but lighter foods.
