The color of this wine is a coppery orange brown with an exceptionally thick and heavy body. You could use a spoon to drink this luscious wine, heck it's almost thick enough to use a fork.
The aroma is full of fresh dates and figs, while the taste is very broad and complex with dates, figs, English toffee, raisins, as well as a hint of warm spices like mace, clove, and Vietnamese cinnamon. It is a full, full flavor that is soft and furry, and explodes on your tongue with every sip, ending with a strong, long, and lingering finish.
If you like rum raisins and toffee you will go wild over this wine. I found it delightful served chilled in a small wine glass, and spent many hours in front of my fireplace taking tiny sips, and letting the syrupy goodness wash over my tongue and through my soul. I can't say enough good things about this sweet and luscious wine.
