The color is dark, like dark golden honey. On the nose, then on the palate, there is incredible richness. It starts with a melange of fruit, baked apples and tart fresh apples, dried apricots, all drizzled generously with honey, followed by toasted sugared nuts. It still has a brilliantly balanced acid zing running through the fruit. This is marvelously rich and balanced, with a finish that lasts forever.
