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.
