Baked apple pie is what this wine smells like, and the flavors are astonishingly the same, like an apple tart right out of the oven. It's not a particularly sweet wine, but the fruit carries with it a suggestion of sweetness, and there's a strong cinnamon spice component also. Might make a great companion to a non-sweet fruit tart.
