An honor to taste this. A truly epic wine. Lots of love in this bottle. Gently sweet, silky, dense & elegant.

Understated and showing much less sweetness than I expected, seeming to be more demi-sec than a dessert wine, though it was hard to tell how much of that is from acidity keeping the sugar in check. Subtle, demure, and incredibly nuanced, it deserves long contemplation and would be fascinating to study on its own over the course of an evening.

Essence of fresh caramelized quince. The acid balances the sweetness beautifully.

Tasty but a little disappointed--a touch oxidized, lacked lift. Brown sugar and poached pear.
