    bottled 2001, aged 5 yrs in bottle. prestige cuvee w crown cap. 90 pts from 2006 wine enthusiast. "extended yeast aging for balance and depth." "Tiny bubbles, complex bouquet, almond, honey, buttered toast w hint of citrus blossom." "Structure is long, soft, creamy w flavors of Fiji apple, candied ginger, savory hazelnut spice; flavors build & linger in a lively finish."
