Lush and delicious, this is rich with complex berry, currant, cola, spice and cedar flavors. It’s earthier and more rustic than the modern style of extreme softness and sweetness, but that’s exactly what gives it such charm.
This is dry, medium bodied and extraordinarily rich, bearing flavors of baked black-cherry pie, mocha and grilled prosciutto, with a long, spicy finish. So what if it’s too soft, or if there’s a trace of overripeness? It’s all part of the wine’s personality.
Imagine a PG as rich, creamy and complex as a great Chardonnay, with, of course, a different flavor profile. This wine is ripe in apple, apricot, nectarine, peach, fig and spice flavors, with a slightly sweet finish. But the acidity works to keep it clean and balanced.
Fully oaked, thus you get aromas of butter, vanilla and ultraripe melon. Plenty of smoke and butter carries onto the palate, where green apple and citrus come into the picture. Solidly structured, with more than enough wood to satisfy a hungry beaver.
