Medium-light mahogany color. Medium-low intensity aromas of straw, roasted hazelnuts, cooked citrus, and yeast. Sweet on the palate, medium body, medium-low acidity, and flavors of sweet cooked apple, cinnamon, walnut skin, and marzipan; medium, delicate sweet finish. Perfect alongside a plate of fresh figs drizzled in black pepper honey. Highly recommended. RR
