Wine Review: This deep amber colored Dessert wine is a very good value. It opens with a fragrant apricot and mango bouquet with hints of pineapple, honey, maple syrup and golden raisin. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, crisp yet creamy, sweet and juicy. The flavor profile is a pineapple, apricot and honey blend with notes of fig and raisin. The finish remains pleasantly sweet and its flavors linger and last for quite a while. This wine can be a dessert on its own or you could pair it with macaroon cookies or Stuart's cheesecake. Enjoy – Ken, Stuart & Karen

Winemaker Notes: This wine is generous and rich yet has great freshness and acidity from the cooler 2017 vintage. Honey suckle, frangipani and lemon balm leap from the glass with concentrated citrus and pineapple strewn across the palate. The finish is long and intense with soft phenolics and fantastic length of flavor.
