Intense aromas of apples and pears start things off, and in the mouth the wine strikes just the right balance between intensity, crispness and full-flavored opulence. Good fruit, good acids, a pleasing creaminess, and an extended finish that lingers cleanly through flavors of toast and butter. Best Buy.
