Tasted On 12/14/2010
13.9 % ABV. Opened and poured through the Vinturi into a decanter, followed over two and one half hours. Initial nose of buttered apple pie dough with linger white flowers. There is also a lot of toast on the nose which worried me at first. The palate, however, is clean with flavors of baked apples and cinnamon. There are tropical flavor with just a hint of key lime. Some secondary flavors of yellow cake with sour cream frosting show as the wine spends more time in the decanter. Two hours in and there are definite flavors of rich creamy lemon. This wine is mouth-filling and has a long, lingering finish. The fruit is ripe and the acidity is balanced. Excellent wine, well made and showing its pedigree now. Drink now or hold 1+ years.
