Full bodied and pronounced on both nose and palate and overflowing with flavor throughout with notes of anise, lily, fresh walnut, wilted basil, chestnut and white pepper punctuated by a bright acidity. There is a slight sweetness and astringency mid-palate to add texture before the long finish as waves and waves of luscious umami crash over the tongue.
