A sweeter, richer, more confected wine, with aromas of buttered toast, butterscotch and apricots. The body is full but not what you'd call flabby; there's adequate acidity to cut the chunkiness. Flavors of apple, melon and mango are sweet, and there's some toast and then a mealy quality to the finish. Heavy and sugary but not a bad wine if you get at it now, before it fades to corny flatness.
