93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
($42; 16.5% alcohol) Light yellow-gold. Vibrant apple, pear and quince on the nose, with subtle baking spice and white pepper notes adding complexity. Improbably light on its feet for a wine with so much alcohol, offering spicy orchard fruit and bitter citrus zest flavors, with floral honey on the back end. Strikingly elegant for its head-spinning (on paper at least) alcohol level. Finishes clean and with unexpected cut. I felt like I'd gone down the rabbit hole with this one.
