Default Carrot Cake Wine Ideas?

A friend and myself are tinkering with the idea for a Carrot Cake Wine, and I was wodnering if anyone had ideas for where we coudl derive the buttery/cream cheese flavor.
Currently we plan to have carrot, clove, cinnamon, and possibly almonds as the main ingredients.
Anyone have any thoughts?

Do you think adding extracts would work?

Thanks for the reminder!
I forgot that vanilla is also on the list of ingredients, did you have other extracts in mind?

I put vanilla and almond extracts in a batch of Dragon's Blood I made. I have not officially tasted it, but while it was fermenting I was able to snag a few sips. It was rather nice.

Olive Nation has a butter extract. With things that are not really a "pure" extract, you may want to use them as a finishing flavor, rather than something put in at the beginning. Until you know how it would meld out over time, anyway.

We made this carrot cake jam recently and it tastes exactly like carrot cake. In terms of spices, I'd add some nutmeg. I wonder what the pear and pineapple would do in a wine...

Having never worked with spices like cinnamon/nutmeg/clove, how much would I want per gallon of wine to get the subtle flavor of it?

cloves are pretty powerful, only throw 1-2 whole cloves per gallon. Nutmeg can also be pretty strong but I'd add 1-2 whole nutmegs ground, as for cinnamon one big stick 6-8inches one cinnamon, not cassia, should do the trick. Do all of them primary as the fermentation will blow off some of it, then taste the finished product and add spices as a tea as necessary. Lactose is probably a good idea too for some residual sweetness (like frosting )

For some reason the hazelnut flavor of the liqueur Frangelico reminds me of butter.
Another one that might provide an interesting flavor, though maybe not so much "buttery", is Bärenjäger.
