"Dark cherry mingles with root beer and an infusion of mint in this forwardly fragrant and luscious, envelopingly rich Auslese. Suggestions of honeydew melon liqueur, candied green herbal concentrates and a touch of salted caramel add to the opulent, overripe impression conveyed on a glycerol-rich palate, leading to a concentrated and impressively sustained finish, albeit one that carries a bit more obvious sense of sheer sweetness than is typical at this address. Thankfully, a sense of juicy fresh-fruitedness persists as well."
