"Honey, apple pie, dried pineapple and acacia aromas follow through to a full body, with medium sweetness and a spicy, viscous finish. Best after 2010. 5,000 cases made." (WS)

"No tasting note given." (WA)

"($42-$50) Bright yellow-gold. Spicy peach, honey, marzipan and vanilla on the rather suave nose. Then ripe and creamy in the middle palate but with very good definition to its flavors of stone fruits and sexy oak spice. Finishes quite long and pure, with noteworthy clarity and grip." (IWC)

"The botrytis is amazingly perfumed, smelling like a Paris perfume shop. The fruit is lost in a crazy range of exotic flavors. Fun, but very different." (WE)
