Clear with a faint straw hue. Sweet creamy vanilla pudding, light caramel, and spicy aromas. A smooth entry leads to an off-dry medium-full body of toasty coconut shavings, creamy vanilla, and brown spices. Finishes with a long, caramel, mineral, and white pepper fade. A very nice, vibrant-yet-mellow style
Deep, bright ruby. Spicy, rich nose offers raspberry, cherry-cola and a hint of smokiness. At once rich and juicy, offering spicy red and black fruit and anise flavors. Finishes with a dusting of fine-grained tannins and very good spicy persistence. I like this wine's blend of depth and spiciness.
