"Slight dusty nose, somewhat medicinal, herbal tone. On second nose better with more coffee grinds tones. In taste start quite light, some tone of fault, not purity. On the finish brown apple tone. Feather light and drier then to be expected. Slightly sweet aftertaste, light styled. On second taste more intensity and charm. Fresh acidity on final. 16.5/20. EV, April 2015.
