This has the concentration and sappy intensity of a late-harvest wine, though it's closer to dry than to off dry. It's borderline unctuous, with lush tropical, stone and citrus fruits all mixed together. Meyer lemon, peach and papaya stand out, with a smooth finish that adds candied pineapple to the party.
