What an amazing wine...perfectly balanced between rich, luscious peaches, honey, and nectar and acidity/lemon...went perfectly with chocolate cake, banana tart, and semifreddo. 99 Points." Review (2010)

"An incredibly complex and rich wine, with myriad tastes and smells, but the wine suffers a bit from an overwhelmingly syrupy mouth feel followed by a tang/tartness finish. The nose gives off aromas of persimmon, honey, fig, brown sugar, and caramel while the viscous liquid tastes like canned peaches and raisins. I don't know if more time in the bottle will tame the syrup...the wine is delicious with fruit for dessert but is just a bit too honey/rich/sweet. ADDITIONAL INSIGHT -- we drank half the bottle, so I had another glass of room-temperate wine 24 hours later, and the wine tasted much more balanced and structured and was quite delicious...still a bit sweet but much less syrupy a day later. We decided to undertake a little test, so we poured a glass for the refrigerator and kept a glass out on the counter. An hour later, we tasted the two glasses and proclaimed the room temperature one superior...the cold one lost the depth and complexity. Our conclusion: open the bottle the night before a tasting or at least decant several hours before and then serve the wine just slightly chilled (perhaps 10-15 min in the refrigerator). 95 points."

"Brown syrup; extremely viscous. Smells like figs, caramel, orange marmalade, honey, exotic fruit flambé. Extremely sweet (550 g/L!!!), moderately acidic, with moderate alcohol. Great length and persistence, but I expected greater complexity; it is too simple. How does one rate this wine??" Review (2007)
