After a subtle, nutty opening, we get more intensity in the mouth, with honey, clove and graham cracker flavors coming through. The texture here is opulent while the finish offers up forthright notes of caramel, lemon and cut apple that hang around just long enough. Drink or hold one or two years.
Opens with an attractive musk note, followed by guava, quince and pear. The palate shows moderate intensity and good freshness. Winds up with a graham cracker note on the finish. This lazy, decadent wine is a good choice for mild blue cheese. Drink now or over the next few years.
