10 year retrospective: Delicious, light honey, camomile, mandarin, pineapple and white raisins medium sweet, medium body, good acid streak keeping it very boyant and fresh. Nice alternative to a heavier Sauterne, but not big enough to survive a lemon tart for dessert.
There's a reason this was on closeout years ago for a veritable song -- it's not a great expression of the bottling. That being said, it's an entirely quaffable dessert wine (its best use, IMO) that has just enough acidic backbone to raise it above just about every other wine at its $20 price point. To dislike it is to be disagreeable. Not really sweet, but certainly off off dry. Light and airy.
