I loved this wine. Late harvest, but with excellent balance -- not sweet or cloying in any way. Beautiful floral aromas with enticing cardamom spiciness in the nose, cinammon and nutmeg in the finish. Round, silky in the mouth with lots of peachy fruit to accompany the spice. I'm sure this is not an ager, but it is certainly impressive in its youth. - HK 2004-02-20
