Buttery aromas along with pineapple and brown sugar notes lends this a rather desserty nose. With air, more wood spice and sweet apple aromas add complexity. This enters the mouth with a distinctive sweet/tart character and some super-ripe flavors of pineapple, mango and pear. There's a creamy edge here but the assertive acidity balances it out along with the sweetness here, and only really becomes obvious on the finish which is also dry and toasty. A fairly complex, rather large scaled wine at this price point. Not my style but well made in its style. 88pts Acidity: Medium Perceived Sweetness: Medium Low Oak: Medium Low Spicy Flavors: Medium Low Savory Flavors: Medium Low Fruity Flavors: Medium Intensity of Flavor: Medium High Weight in Mouth: Medium
