Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 97.7 points

  • Tasted blind, this wine had a light gold center and clear rims. The high- nose of apple cider, ginger, lemons, and honey was nice but a bit funky.

    In the mouth, this wine was quite viscous and rich with lovely fine-grained acidity. The length was fantastic. It got better and better in the glass and in the end was quite majestic. I would have to say the mouth-feel of this wine is amazing and special.

    However, the slightly oxidative note suggested by my apple cider description was a bit distracting. Thus, this very expensive bottle merited an impressive but not a superlative score.

    Given the above, I see no reason to save this wine for later.

  • From a magnum. One of the three finest wines I have ever had the privilege of tasting. I will never forget this evening.

  • Beautifully constructed wine. Never knew white wines could taste so good. Explosive nutty fragrance. Creamy texture of butterscotch on the palate. Opened up nicely over the next couple of hours. I suspect this powerhouse could last another couple of decades. Gorgeous!

  • Words cannot do this wine justice. It is light on the tongue, but has a weight and intensity such that even after you have swallowed it you can still chew it like a steak. It is a model of paradox. The brilliance is almost overwhelming. This wine is the appetizer, main course, dessert, cheese platter, and after-dinner conversation. A++
