The color is deep mahogany brown, with olive hues. The bouquet is a combination of malt and honey, with hints of raisins and the unmistakable scent of tea leaves, which is the hallmark of Rutherglen tokay. There is real lusciousness and weight on the palate with full, mellow honeyed flavors, lingering complex ratio characters and drying tannins on the finish to balance the sweetness and prevent it from cloying.
"Dark amber in color and going greenish at the rim, the basis of this wine is clearly old stocks going back well over 60 years. It's full-bodied, unctuous and superrich, oozing with molasses and rancio character, but balanced by citrusy notes. The finish is incredibly sweet and long, coating the mouth with coffee-like essences that linger for minutes. "
