I feel a little bit of a party-pooper on this one after all the high marks. Sorry!
The nose is as good as everyone has said, wonderfully complex and rich, dried fruits, apricots, all of the above and more.
Unfortunately, after such a great build up (which leads me to believe there was no flaw here) the palate was, as my partner said much more succinctly than I, "rather one dimensional". Just sweet, not much balancing acidity, little complexity. Ah well.
Table 21 (Volt): Apricot followed by apricot followed by some more apricot. Just a super concentrated wine. Sweet but with enough acidity to result in just a lovely wine. Was dessert all by itself but was equally great with the 5 desserts we were served.
