Wine Enthusiast 85 points - (Tried & True Award)- Bright russet/amber color. Smells of butcher’s wax paper, brown rice, lanolin, palm oil, grain kernel. Taste profile is round, nutty, keenly toffee-like, peppery, off-dry. Finish is softer than midpalate, oily.
Initial sniffings detect tart, yeasty aromas of barley malt and bread dough. Palate entry is off-dry and a touch bittersweet in caramel; at midpalate, the taste profile tends to the toasted cereal and toasted bread side of the scale. Finishes gracefully, dry, tart, crisp and clean. 85-89 Points Wine Enthusiast
