Smooth, tropical, intense sweet, touch of acetone, peach and almond, exceptional length,

11/17/2018 - RGCM GANANDA LIKES THIS WINE: 93 Points
Tart orange, honey and caramel notes on the nose. Nearly full bodied (13.5% ABV) with a mix of golden peach and bright pineapple upfront. Plenty of honey, caramel overlaying a still-dense mix of gold orchard fruit and gold tropical notes through the mid-body. Light spices towards the back along with tart orange qualities. Shows excellent overall integration with the honeyed qualities, impressive depth and mix of golden fruit upfront and tart orange/acidity in the background make for a very enjoyable bottle. Should be able to hold this level for several more years, but I would drink before 2023. It will clearly last well beyond that, but I think it will provide the best experience between now and then.

Amber colour. PNP, from 375ml, drank 1 glass over 30 minutes. This was quite unctuous, caramelized, crème brûlée, orange marmalade, honey, full bodied, spice cake. Options

7/20/2018 - BON VIVANT WROTE: 94 Points
At age 15 it was time to check in on a 375 and absolutely no disappointment. A rich opulent vintage that reminded me of many of the 1990 bottles at that age. It will be fun to follow this over the next few decades as it gets more age nuances and my score should be followed by a + for future potential.
