Superripe, supersaturated style with rich, thick flavors of pear, peach and papaya, enlivened with cinnamon and toasted coconut spice. This is very well made, and carries its heft with grace and a certain amount of precision. The nose is exceptionally complex, layered with tropical fruits, citrus, mint, exotic spices and more. The finish lingers sensuously.
