Pale amber color with bright, old copper hues. Full, rich and fruity with notes of mild tobacco, citrus, spices and liquorice. Its finish is balanced and round, with a wealth of soft rancio.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 95-100
"Nosing finds luxuriously mature aromas of old library leather, dried yellow fruit, nougat, cocoa paste, oak, honey, candied orange and even some black pepper. Palate entry is full-weighted, sweet, concentrated, nutty and buttery; midpalate adds rancio, honey, earth and apricot nectar. Concludes sweet, tobacco-like, mildly smoky and marshmallow-like. Flat-out delicious. - P.P. (10/1/2009) - Classic/Highest Recommendation"
