Light to medium golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is nice with honey, slight pineapple, wet rocks and with air, just the slightest hint of diesel.  Full bodied.  On the palate, this still will develop more although it is very nice now.  Almost blowsy but just enough acidity to rein that in.  Not sweet but has the texture of a sweet wine and is dry.  Plenty of honey and slight peach over a crushed rock base.  Nice finish.  Very nice on its own, but would be better with Thai food.  Drink over the next ten to fifteen years.
