Golden hued with a slight brass note, like a cross between an old brass bed frame and an old wedding band. The nose is lively, expressive and heavily perfumed with notes of apricots, almonds, acacia flowers and blueberries. Flavors of cream, coconut, pineapple, walnuts and more of the floral component lead to a rich and silky finish. There is a touch of alcohol heat, but not enough to be offensive. The finish boasts just enough acidity to keep the wine in line.
