With 60-day skin contact, this wine shimmers in a cloudy tangerine shade. This has a red wine-like bouquet evoking old leather, dried apricot, baked apple, seaweed, and citrus. The oxidative style comes through on the nose in a faint Bourbon-esque aroma. On the palate, there’s a spike of orange flavor, along with juicy acidity that adds lift and a nervy cut. This is a superbly umami wine. It finishes with a floral, musky tone.
