Dark amber color and rich baked apple nose. More like peach nectar and honey on the palate with some acidity left to help it finish clean. Not as overtly sweet or fresh as young versions though. It is quite good, but just not up to the standards of the great dessert wines. Don't wait on this, I don't think it will improve but should hold for a few more years.
This is a liquid baked apple. Caramelized, slightly tart, long finish, mellow, lively with bright apple acid. Smooth, silky, viscus. A really nice not too sweet dessert wine. Pair with not too sweet fruit desserts. I have to imagine its perfect with tart tatin. Young maturity and will have a long life ahead. B+/A-
Urbano Wine Dinner - August 2010 (Urbano Cafe, Dallas, Texas): Tasted non blind at a wine dinner. Opened and served immediately. Somewhere between amber and gold color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose of honeysuckle, apricot and lilikoi. Flavors of honey, apricot, almonds and lilikoi. Medium to bright acidity, medium body. Just a touch cloying. Drink or hold. 91-92?
