Opened two hours before drinking with a very slight chill on the bottle. Cloudy, brownish ruby color with a slight purple tint and lighter rim. Rich caramel, plum, raisins and sweet spicy aromas. Rich, zesty, sweet & creamy mouthfeel, medium-full body and a 200-grit texture. Powerful plum, apricot, orange and prune fruit flavors along with plenty of caramel and vanilla. Edgy acidity and smooth fine-grain tannins that come alive in the long spicy plum tasting finish. Resembling Tawny Port, but with layers of fruit tastes and a very engaging finish. Fantastic paired with the Aebleskiver or sipping without food after dinner. Amazing fruity dessert wine.
