Fresh and baked apple, with backup aromas of coconut flow up on the nose. Warmed baked apple and poached pear flavors lead on the palate, with honeysuckle and nutmeg providing highlights and depth. The wine is soft, with warmed baked fruit and spice flavors and aromas. Drink with lobster bisque. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
