A highly appealing nose of fruit cocktail or semi-sweet mixed fruit confit drizzled over freshly fallen snow. Nice light yellow color in the glass with good viscosity. In the mouth, the wine carries a light toast and butter flavor with a slight sprinkle of vanilla. The finish is quite lengthy with some residual acidity but a lingering taste of spiced fruit or gentle, floral perfume. An excellent wine that may age another 4-5 years. Tasted at the 2010 Vancouver International Wine Festival.
