Issue Issue 127

($40-$48) Full yellow-gold. Musky aromas of exotic apricot liqueur, baking spices, toffee and smoke. Supersweet and unctuous, but with its glyceral texture cut by bright acids. The exotic apricot flavor is nicely complemented by coconut, vanilla and caramel. Finishes very long and juicy. Offers a very successful combination of thickness and firm acid edge.

This is very sweet and rich on the nose, with toffee, honey and spices. Full-bodied, and thick honey. Spice, dried apricot and syrup flavors. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Big botrytis bomb. Love it. 8,000 cases made.

This is an exquisite dessert wine! Notes of apricot, orange zest, and honey on the palate, which is followed by a long, silky finish! Absolutely delightful! If you can find this wine, I would strongly recommend it!

Loads of lemon and some banana on the nose. On the pallet, honey and toffee dominate with a long finish. Enjoyable now, but will continue to improve during the next 6 plus years. Loved it.

Creme brulee and vanilla, with a hint of spice on the nose. Spicy botrytis and vanilla on the palate with hints of caramel. In the glass, wine opened to even more caramel. Very nice.

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.
