Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Raisins and molasses are inviting aromas. Sumptuous in the mouth, flavors develop into deep vanilla, dried stone fruit and hints of baking spice. The finish is slightly nutty, leaving a luxurious impression on the palate.
The aroma offers succulent dried fruit and nut surface notes plus deeper scents of oak, black raisins, cinnamon, prunes, vanilla bean and honey. Palate entry is stately and semisweet; by midpalate, lip-smacking flavors of nougat, almond butter, molasses and Sherry abound. Finishes as elegantly and fully as it started. 90-95 Points Wine Enthusiast
