Community Tasting Notes (37) Avg Score: 91.1 points

  • Notes similar to last time. Such a wonderful wine. Lovely chestnut color. Medium dry. Good acidity with a saucy sour-apricot flavor with and lemon-citus finish. Mouth watering and lovely finish.

    (Served with a cream of celery soup. Good combo, but would the Verdelho or varietal work just as well? Not sure.)

  • Tasted out of curiosity, as it was one of the ingredients for my wife's beef Wellington. A rich, caramel and citrus nose was followed by a smooth, slightly heavy body that ended with a strong lemon tartness, yet with buttery caramel to the end.

  • Similar notes to a bottle last year. Drank this over the course of a couple of months. Toffee, orange rind and pecan. So well balanced and easy to drink with or without food. Really solid value as well.

  • Tawny brown color. Ripe nose of raisins, walnuts, celery, caramel, alcohol, and VA. The palate is not as ripe as the nose with raisins, walnuts, campfire, caramel, toffee, and buttered popcorn exploding on the tongue. The hallmark acidity makes this lively on the palate and gives some real character while hiding the 19.2% alcohol. The long finish is packed with caramel and buttered popcorn, some might call out pralines. Overall, I really enjoyed this as a off-dry aperitif because it has lovely flavor with terrific acidity which makes the entire package both fascinating and enjoyable.

  • The score reflects my preference as opposed to the quality of the wine. Nose I like...raisins, molassas?, palate is too dry.
