Interesting, and a terrific bargain. Lemon curd leads in the attack, followed by honeyed oak and white flowers. Leafy spices appear on the finish, marjoram and a touch of sage. The finish is more tart than the palate, the acids giving it a solid backbone. His would be very nice with scallops, and even better with a salty ham. Recommended for taste and value.
