Shows enticing aromas of toffee cream dried apricot and caramel. Full-bodied very sweet and thick with honey and caramel flavors. Long and rich oozing with sweet ripe fruit this is like liquid candy. Best after 2016.

Then wonderfully thick fat and sweet with the exotic coconut character carrying through in the mouth. Finishes saline and powerful with palate-staining flavors of pineapple coconut and spicy oak. Conveys a strong impression of solidity.

What a balance in this wine notes of apple pie honey and spiced lemons. Full-bodied and sweet with a bright acidity and dried citrus with honey and orange marmalade. 140 grams of residual sugar but very fresh still... What a balance in this wine notes of apple pie honey and spiced lemons. Full-bodied and sweet with a bright acidity and dried citrus with honey and orange marmalade. 140 grams of residual sugar but very fresh still. Beautiful now but wait to pull the cork in 2012.
