Upfront, the nose is grainy, dry and delicate. Palate entry is peppery and sweeter than I thought it would be, but not cloying; midpalate displays vibrant, spicy fragrances of snack crackers laced with pepper, black peppercorn, lemon zest and mustard seed; the texture is creamy and full. Concludes on a silky, citrusy note. Substantial and well-made.
