Earthy, original. Notes that combine the brighter notes of clay with richer suggestions of humus dominate aroma and cup, though discreetly and pleasingly, complicated by carob, oak, grapefruit, perhaps a hint of vanilla-like flowers. Backgrounded but gently vibrant acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The earthy sensation gives way to sweeter vanilla and carob suggestions in a gently drying finish.
