($49; L630357149) Bright yellow-gold with a slow bead. Deep, musky pear, peach skin and yellow plum on the nose. Sappy and full, offering gently sweet pit fruit and pear flavors that pick up a smoky note with air. Comes across as drier than the last couple of releases under this label, with a touch of finishing bitterness and a lingering note of spicecake.
