    appearance: clear bright of medium intensity golden color with luscious legs at the bowl nose: clean with medium (+) intensity, developping. aromas of apple skins, orange blossom, honey, with medicinal characteristics reminding one of a spirit rather than a sweet wine palate: sweet with medium acidity and medium alcohol level. a medium (-) body with medium (+) intensity of orange blossom, honey, apricot, ripe apple, pinapples. a complex, fresh, and luscious palate with a long finish and watery freshness that calls for another sip. conclusion: good: a fine balance between acidity, flavours, and alcohol level. a very refreshing wine which shows smoothness and complexity of flavours. a very surprising discovery considering that it is made from frozen apples and not from grapes. definitely to look for.

    a fantastic wine. beautiful clear bright ruby color, with medium intensity aromas of fresh forest fruits, berries, and licorice. a very well balanced palate with its acidity, soft ripe tannins, and flavours marrying each other perfectly. a long richly fruity lenght of complexity and savouriness which waters my mouth only thinking about it now. definitely a great wine which, in my humble experience, i think will be a great fine wine. to keep for many years.

    appearance: clear bright, opaque purple ruby color with much lucsciou legs on the bowl of the glass nose: clean with a medium (+) intensity. developping with fruity characteristics of stewed dark forest fruits - blackberries, blueberries and dark cherries. with hints of black pepper and leather. palate: dry with a fairly balanced medium (-) acidity & medium tannin (round) with a high alcohol level and full body. medium (+) intensity flavours much as nose but with more pronounced pepper and leather on the finish. a medium and silky finish. conclusion: a good quality wine. with a good level of acidity, tannin and fruit still present, a fairly complex wine, it is ready to drink but can age for further terciary complexity development.
