Like a candy bar in a bottle... Sounds like a plug line... But it fits. I'm rather new to wine, so please bear with my clumsy attempts to rate this. I've had many dessert wines, all of them sweet, closer to juice than alcohol in my opinion. This is NOT one of those wines. While sweet, it is not overpowering, not sugary or juicy. It's more of a richer, semisweet taste, fruit with what I'd swear was a hint of chocolate. The kind of wine you could serve to your friends after dinner as a sweet, clearly grown up treat. I don't think I've ever tasted anything quite like it.
