look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

2002 vintage. Tulip glass.

Pours light mahogany with a cap of off-white foam. Pretty good lacing. Aroma is toast and honey, sherry with dark fruit like black currant and fig. Smells good with nice complexity. Taste is... wow, blast of sweetness which hits you up front and then fades into a nice, long honey finish. Honey and sherry are dominant flavors. Full bodied, a minimal carbonation which is fitting for the style, slight acidity which provides some nice structure. Overall, this is a very nice slow sipper for those with a sweet tooth.
