Stephen Tanzer's International Wine CellarAmber-orange. Spicy aromas of singed orange, apricot pit and dried fig, with a touch of heat lending a volatile quality.

SLimpid ruby and amber in color, a nose full of rose petals, cherries and coffee, syrupy sweet, balanced with a touch of bitterness weaving through the dried cherry and tea leaf notes on the finish.
