TASTING NOTE: Distinctive, succulent and wonderfully complex, offering stone fruit flavors on a rich, smooth and mouthwateringly juicy frame, with notes of honeysuckle, honey-preserved ginger, creamy lemon curd, ripe mango and flowers. Hints of spices linger on the long, expressive finish. Drink now [through 2027+]. Highly Recommended. Score - 95 (MaryAnn Worobiec, winespectator.com, Oct. 15, 2023) Price $ 26.95
