Smells like an oloroso Sherry.. Baked apple/pear cinnamon, Marcona almond paste, caramel. High acid, pronounced intensity, long finish with pronounced minerality.

Creme brûlée and apples. A bit evolved for my palate but still very nice. It actually felt younger the longer it was open. Tightened up with time

(Donated bottles from one of our members, we strayed from our fully Burgundy tradition for starting the night, but in the best way possible.)

Dark golden with an ethereal nose of challah toast and fresh yeast. Rich, round and laced with honeysuckle, almost bereft of bubbles, this was just a beautiful wine.

Lovely rounded plush fruit. Nice gentle acidity and developed and broad on the palate. Mature and drinking well. From magnum
