Fantastic bottle. Raw tartness and power structured by the unique geometry of oxidative winemaking. Sweet dried fruit nose with grilled walnuts, and the body is sherry-like, but with a vibrant bite beyond all but the best sweet sherry. Mushroom, rum, caramel, and berry liquor. So good.

I can appreciate these wines but I still do not have the palate for some. Notes of Saline, rubber cement and maple syrup on the nose. The palate I was getting caramel popcorn, pecan and Saline.

Dainty, if thats possible, paired @Ruffian wine bar w desert. Definitely more of a foil for desert than a journey into the wine. Has a nice spine of some acidity which i didnt expect

Lord Stanley served this chilled and it was delicious. Not to sweet and soft acidity and more sherry notes than I'm used to.

Great value. Works as an aperitif, digestif or just quality hydration.
