Rich and buttery, with corn flakes, baked apple, pear and a touch of wood resin on the nose. Apple cider, vanilla, toast and cream flavors are satisfying, while the long finish rests mostly on texture and leftover vanilla. An interesting barrel-aged wine made from the obscure Dona Blanca grape that's mostly used for making a grappa-like distilled spirit.
