Light golden in color.  The nose is nice with honey, ever so slight nuttiness, and some apricot.  On the palate, this is sweet.  Someone suggested "Jolly Rancher" candies and that is pretty accurate.  I might have said honeyed/sugary peaches.  There is good acidity to balance it out.  A little goes a long way.  This should last for decades to come.
