    November 9, 2019 - Ponsot Clos de la Roche: Thick as motor oil, and one of the most concentrated tastes of wine you could imagine. A unique and pleasurable experience.

    June 10, 2019 - A few times in a lifetime, you drink a wine that brings tears to your eyes and your body starts to shake from excitement. This just happened as I was decanting this for my supper with my wine buddies tonight. Easily one of the top five 100 points I have awarded. Just incredible. Thick unctuous, I'm talking Maple syrup consistency, the wine was silent as I poured it resembling light coca cola in colour. Black tea, marmalade, honey, brown sugar, coconut, mango, dried apricots, orange jam with a never ending finish. The greatest dessert wine I have ever had and probably will never have another like it again. Will last another 30 years.

    June 27, 2018 - A thick, viscous dessert wine. Dark caramel color, doubt this will improve, but plenty of acidity to support it. Complex, changing with molasses, currant, citrus peel and fig. Fascinating and perfect with a savory cake with wild blackberry sauce. A classic of its kind, the Czars were apparently regular customers.

    October 7, 2017 - Very sweet, but it does have good acidity. Feels mid 200g/l RS. Blind I'd call this as a Rutherford Muscat. The definition of raisiny. Lots here, but it's pretty forthright. Looks more like a light px. Super. ****

    May 14, 2015 - This was the star at our wine tasting event. Lots of sediment stuck on the inside of the glass, this wine pours with a syrupy texture. Powerful nose of fig, raisins, and maple syrup. Taste like fig juice, syrupy with full body and long finish.
