Opaque, orange/brown hue with aromas of sherry, burnt caramel, orange, and spruce,
Palate--Thickish, ultra sweet, dill pickle, silky texture, acidity to carry the sweetness without being cloying, and basically all the aromas in the bouquet transfer to the palate. The finish continues for what seems an eternity.
I was skeptical of this wine having paid $25 for the 375 ml thinking it would be shot. But it is absolutely lovely! I had a Chateau D' Y'Quem years ago and it cost $100 for 375 ml and it wasn't nearly this good. It has been minutes past and the finish is still vibrant and luxurious. Pairing it with almond biscotti.
I paid $25 for the half bottle and it is worth that and much more so so raise a glass!
