Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Cherry and vanilla dominate the nose, with allusions to Bosch pear, honeysuckle, and clove. A pronounced oaky character on the palate gives way to toasted coconut, white pepper, stewed cherries ,and peach. A long, smooth burn on the finish is very welcome.
The bouquet features a woody/piney aromatic surface with dry scents of grain and resin beneath. The palate entry has a flash of corny sweetness upfront, then a whisper of butterscotch; the midpalate is full-bodied, sweet, oily, clean, and maple-like. Concludes with sumptuous tastes of dark honey and marzipan. 90-95 Points Wine Enthusiast
