    Golden yellow in color. Strong scents of apricot, honey, and roasted sugar. Thick, dense and oily in texture with gobs of ripe fruit. Very intense and vanilla-fused in flavor with wonderful complexity of sweetness, balanced out by fresh, ripe acid. Firmly built with lots of stuffing for long keeping - however, I would not hesitate opening up a bottle, the wine is great right now. Long aftertaste. Great!
