Ken Forrester 'The FMC' 2008 ripe & exotic

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts Wine Spectator 4/30/10
A very ripe, exotic style, with a toasted hazelnut aroma leading the way for almond tuile, fig and glazed pear notes. The lush finish lets additional papaya and creamed peach notes chime in. This has an off-dry hint, but stays balanced. A flashy style for sure, but pulls it off.
90 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 2011
Full, bright deep yellow. Wild, complex nose combines orange blossom, dried apricot, honey, brown spices and a whiff of lees. Lush, musky and carnal; in a full-blown, nearly unctuous but not overly sweet style (12.8 g/l r.s.,), lifted by a strong peppermint and spice character. Finishes with hints of caramel and grilled nuts. Try this exotic, rather extreme wine with spicy Thai food. The grapes were picked in five passes for optimum ripeness, with some botrytis at the end, then fermented slowly in 400-liter French oak barrels.
