The aroma displays a complex array of fresh pineapple and mango, sweet lemon, with hints of peach jam and apricot. Cinnamon, clove, and sweet vanilla add richness to the underlying scent of honeysuckle and creamy caramel. The palate has juicy peach, lychee and grilled pineapple flavors at entry, then displaying a core of sweet ripe apricot and apple. The flavors build with vanilla and brown sugar which gives the wine a smooth, round syrupy texture. The finish is long and lingering with nutmeg and crème brulee.

This is a terrific wine, extremely powerful in fruity flavors. It impresses for its sheer volume. Waves of apricots, nectarines, pears, green apples, butterscotch, buttered toast and smoky, vanilla-tinged oak surf the palate, carried along on a wave of crisp acidity.

A rich, creamy-textured style, with layers of ripe fig, melon, apricot and jazzy smoky, toasty oak that gives this depth and complexity, with an expansive range of flavors. Drink now through 2011.
