Winemaker's Notes

#20 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

Very good balance and complexity to this sweet wine. Deep, roasted fruit notes are complemented by lively fresh apricot and quince and the wine is at once luscious yet sprightly with a beautiful blossomy scent with a fresh finish. Glazed peach and honey overflow from the nose, conterbalanced by lovely earthy nuances.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe, intense and dynamic, with juicy layers of sweet pineapple, apricot and mango puree. Generous yet tightly focused, with an abundance of vanilla bean, mace and other exotic spices that emerge on the long finish. Drink now through 2027."
