Nose: Thick vanilla pudding, ripe dates, and plenty of dry woodiness. Pineapple and peach cobbler later on.
Palate: Definitely a hearty oak base here, yet it manages to simultaneously remain quite light on the tongue. Sweet wine starts to peek through along with a bit of vanilla towards the end.
Finish: A young, tingling spiciness takes us through more of that forest, but mizunara obviously has another appointment, since it all drops off a tad too quickly if you ask me. Very dry and leaves me reaching for my chaser.
