Holy crap, what a beautiful wine. I don't know why I have been sitting on two bottles of this, but I just had to open one last weekend. The color is gorgeous: a deep orange color, almost like an Islay single malt, but with an evening sunset glow. The nose is wonderful: herbal, honey, and spice. It is the palate that is mind-blowing. Loads of dried apricot, toasting hazelnuts and almonds, peach pits, nectarine..you name it. This beauty is in no mood to slip away into old age. "She" is ready for you; seductive, beckoning, and with a unctuous viscosity that wraps around your tongue.
If you have some of this, enjoy. However, it has the "stuff" to go another 5-10 years. I'll TRY to hold for another 2-3 yrs, but... 97pts.
