Very soft and sensual. Each sip keeps you wanting more. The '89 can still see some more years in bottle.

Deep golden color, enticing expansive baked spiced apples and pears, sultana, honeysuckle, light hazelnut on the nose comes to life on the palate. After a swell of stone on the midpalate, the honeyed, sliced fruit returns for a delicious finish. Fresh acidity and smooth texture make for a wine that is peaking beautifully. Drink now or soon!
