Clear, dark golden brown with very strong legs. Characteristic bouquet with complex dried fruits and wood, toffee and vanilla. Sweet, smooth, full bodied, complex, and a long finish of nuts and dark chocolate.
"Rich, smooth and lush, displaying fine definition to the maple, honey and cream flavors. Long in the midpalate, with lemon zest and spice, followed by smoke and white chocolate on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 150 cases made. "
"This wine's toffee, chamomile, crushed almond and walnut scents seem to mirror its golden tawny color. From there, it’s a tightwire act of extreme sweetness and high acidity, a contrast of golden raisin with orange rind, of apricot with Indian spice. The finish is more oxidative in tone, with nuttiness providing its own bitter cut to the sweetness. Alight with complexity, this would be delicious with almond cookies or after dinner on its own. "
