Low US Retail is updated twice a month and excludes outlier listings. Detailed listings are sourced daily from our partner, Global Wine Stocks, and may include outliers. Note that you can use the 'Report a problem' link which appears after clicking on any individual listing to notify our content team and partner of incorrect wine matches.
Auction prices are based on actual auction results (inclusive of buyerÂ’s premiums) of 750ml bottle sizes only. As auction prices fluctuate from auction to auction and some wines have limited auction activity, the average auction price is updated twice a month and derived from a proprietary algorithm.

This wine has developed nicely since I last tried it and has good body and length. Raisins, honey and sweet citrus on the palate and dried fruits, straw, syrup and raisins on the ablate. I am looking forward to the next bottle. Excellent.

What a smell. Sweet butterscotch liqueur, honeyed, bronze color, not yellow, amber. Baking spices. Banana cream pine. Sweet and unctuous. Good acidity left.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
