Currant, cranberry, dry fall leaves, bloody maguro — 7 days ago
This was a journey. Started off thin and watery. Took 45 minutes and then became very aromatic in a tertiary way. The nose was gorgeous for a while and palate got opulent but remained lithe. Then it finished off thin and watery but there was a good window. The score is for when it was drinkable. It was for maybe 40 minutes. Very cool to taste.

Just amazing…i feel its worth the price…slight golden, baked apple, spice, slight vanilla, raging acidity and long finish… — a month ago
With bottles I wanted to taste the most left behind, I was ready for Exquise, from which I had no expectations as I heard controversial thoughts on this wine. Ripe white wild cherries, cookies, candied fruits (or was it pastilla?) and yellow plums. And a bit of nuts. Fresh, round, and well-balanced. The aftertaste is long and persistent. A bit of wet cellar and Jerez in the finish. The higher sugar level is obvious, but it doesn't disturb me. Very approachable and easy to understand. It's just a well-made one-dimensional wine you hardly remember the next day.
