Supple and deep, offering sweet citrus and orchard fruit flavors and hints of bitter herbs and baking spices. Turns more tangy with air, picking up notes of candied ginger and star anise. Exotic but not too heavy-in fact, this is actually lively for a sweet late-harvest wine, finishing with very good clarity and spicy persistence. This would be superb with a terrine of foie gras or blue cheeses. (JR)
