This golden-colored wine has enticing aromas of butterscotch, vanilla, caramel, and pineapple upside-down cake. In the mouth, there are great flavors of dried apricot, mango and honeycomb. It has elegant heft on the palate and balanced acidity in the finish. Enjoy now or keep in your cellar for another decade or so. 95 Points and #20 in Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 of 2017.
