Golden light brown with a viscousity that I have not seen before, granted this is my first PX. Brown sugar with dried apricot and dare I say mango? Maple syrup maybe cherries, peaches baked with cinnamon and a strange ethereal overtone of salt air. Heavy, Heavy, did I mention heavy? Thick like maple syrup with a sweetness that lingers on and on and on and on....Cinnamon, fresh coffee, carmel, baked fruit(both peaches and apricots) and toffee. What I'm not getting is any nuttiness, but maybe a light oak. My mind wants to put nuts into it but my palate says no. Strong acidity throughout and a strange Honeydew flavor that comes through on the finish. Wow...interesting, not one dimensional at all, like many heavy stickies tend to be. I won't rate this till I have more, and while this is on the low end pricewise for PX's I can't imagine what better tastes like! YUM! [NR]

Thick burnt caramel color with a viscousity that makes motor oil look delicate. Made from dried grapes the nose of this is full of dried fruits from raisens to prunes to peach or nectarine. Soft nuts and caramel, along with very light wood polish all fill in around the fruits in the nose of this wine. In the mouth this wine sits thick on the palate though what makes me so excited is that fact that there is a ton of acidity helping to keep this wine fresh and alive in the mouth. The finish, well, I started this note on Saturday night and come Monday morning it's still lingering. As far as the flavors, think caramel, honey, molasses(light), myriad nuts, carrmelized peachs...all of this combined with notes of cinnamon, anise and cloves. The first time I had this it was one of the first PX's for me. Now that I've had many others, this one still is damn close to perfect! alt=5 [NR]

Light honey color. The nose shows brown sugar, raw oak and candy like nuts. Viscous and thick with a high acidity that balances it nicely. Dry fruits, prunes, raisens, and a bit of oak on the finish. 3.5/5 [NR]
