So we drank this on a root day and it was really good but not outrageous especially for the price. Drinking at 10 years was also probably not the smartest decision 😬. But it was one of those rare convivial evenings where a dessert wine was the perfect finish!

Soft spice, hints of caramel and partly dried apricots and fading white flowers. Lush and powerful but balanced by great acidity on the lengthy finish, where layers of fruit coats the palate. Still young.

Beautiful. Overripe pineapple, creme brûlée, honeysuckle. Loads of power. See you in another decade at least.
