"Powerful" was the description I was given, and it's true. Tangerine nose, with a bit of apricot, too. Thick, honeyed mouthfeel. More apricot and tangerine peel in the finish. Perfect botrytis occurred this vintage. Great with lobster + butter.
Straw-gold color. Honey-strawberry aromas over deeper tangerine peel flavor. Tangerine-peach exhale with a touch of pineapple compote. As it opens in the glass, a nice, lemony tang appears. Not a fruit salad, but a wine you could drink with a fruit tart.
Opens with light floral underlain by apricot. Fresh, light fruit flavors of apricot, peach, with pineapple and tangerine peel in the long finish. Beautifully balanced. Light-medium body. Still young.
First Aromas of cedar and cherry, followed by the promise of earthiness. Later, candied florals emerge. Deep plum red color with an undertone of brown bears out the promise: this is European-style in flavor and acidity, but New World in its apparent low tannins and mild finish.
