Another visit to the weekly Wednesday Wine Committee, and a wonderful hosting by Glenn. As always, all wines are tasted blind. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert.

Wow! What a pull from Glenn. My guess was BA (which ended up being correct) but many others were trying to call it TBA or Sauternes. This was sweet, but not liqueur enough for it to be TBA and not enough compact flavors and honeyed savory notes to be Sauternes. Honeyed underripe peach and guava, with a tart finish. I thought it was only 20yrs old!

Amazing nose, aromatic, floral, lemon rind liqueur; surprisingly youthful on the palate too.

Gorgeous aromatics, fruity and intense palate with all traces of sugar fully integrated into an almost none-dry finish. Amazing.

This one just got going and still not stopping. Think honeyed fall spices with the acidity that's still hanging in there proudly.
