Wine Review: This goldenrod colored Ice-styled wine opens with a fragrant overripe pear bouquet with a hint of honey and apricot. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, viscous and very smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty apricot and ripe pear blend with notes of honey and pineapple. The finish is sweet and its flavors linger for quite some time. This is an Very Good dessert wine that can be consumed on its own. It is a perfect choose to finish off a romantic evening. Enjoy – Ken
