92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2005

($83; for 375 ml.; 8.5% alcohol, 371 g/l residual sugar, 7 g/l acidity) Deep yellow-gold. Highly complex aromas and flavors of stone fruits, coconut, blossom honey, orange zest, wild mushroom and vanilla bean. The palate is compact and creamy, retaining focus thanks to vibrant acidity. Finishes with a flavor of apricot jam, with the well-integrated sweetness adding a suggestion of fresh honey. A long-distance runner that will require time to develop. Drink 2010 to 2030.
