    Tarragon, candied ginger accents, Meyer lemon, tangerine and yellow apple aromas show very fine definition. Energetic and precise on the palate, offering bitter citrus pith, orchard fruit flavors and deeper suggestions of sweet butter and honey. Shows sharp clarity finishing silky and quite long, with a subtle floral nuance hanging on. All stainless steel.
