  • Heavy syrup-like texture. Orange marmalade on palate.

  • Cos d'Estournel & Tokaj-Hétszőlő With Jean-Guillaume Prats (Wine Exchange - Orange, CA): Wow I am having a hard time wrapping my head around this wine. The nose is simply stunning and endlessly complex, it is hard to describe the power and detail present here. There seems to be a central and purely novel aroma of black tea which just radiates out of the glass and is buttressed by fig, raisin paste, brown sugar, pear, apple, apricot, and a myriad of other stone fruits. This elixir reveals an instant epiphany moment as soon as it hits your tongue and explodes with weightless texture. The flavors are remarkable in their uniqueness and include fig, stone fruits, spices, glue, agave nectar, and minerals. The acidity must be the source of the effortless impression and I cannot imagine how beaming it must be to balance the essence infused sugar of this wine. This is a staggering concoction that seems too profound to be considered a mere wine, maybe liquid rapture is a more apt designation.
