Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - (Tried & True Award)- Golden raisin-like color. Sumptuous aroma of baked fruits (pears, nectarines, quince), wine grapes, malt, fruit salad, honeysuckle -- amazing bouquet. Flavors include white raisins, honey, apple butter, wine, biscuits. Finishes long, succulent, divinely ambrosial. (Mar 2015)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - Smells of smoky, burnt nectarine, apricot and buttery scents that are toasty, nutty and heavenly. Entry is chewy, viscous, concentrated and intensely honeyed; the midpalate is waxy, mildly spicy, jammy, nutty and utterly decadent. Finishes with panache and grace.
