Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Sweet herbs, lemon candy and acacia on the nose. Tropical fruit flavors are given a light touch by refreshing, cooling mintiness. Well balanced and pleasant to drink.
According to importer Terry Theise: "The sweetness has been inching down each year, which makes me glad, because this '10 shows you don't need a lot of fructose to eke out this wine's cider-y soul. This is a riot of apple, a pagan orgy of apples, apples reenacting Caligula (co-starring aloe-vera), an insanely, bewitchingly lip-smackingly delicious wine, as this is at its very best."
