Tasting Notes

The 2012 vintage hints at a subdued floral and fragrant nose with wafts of honeysuckle and jasmine. A fresh, spicy palate that's subtly aromatic and exotic, redolent of dried peaches and ginger. Semi-sweet and well-rounded, it continues to display the cool climate aspects of Darling.
