97 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008

($124; for 375 ml.; 100% old-vines moscatel) Orange-gold color. Remarkably concentrated nose displays a surreal array of orchard and pit fruit aromas, along with candied and toasted nuts, orange oil, dried flowers and smoked meat. Has the texture of a demi-glace and makes your lips stick together, offering deeply concentrated pit fruit compote and candied fig flavors, plus a surprising citrus jolt on the back end. Can't say that this ever actually finished. Each half-bottle of this wine required 6.25 kilograms of grapes; the fermentation took two years to begin and then finished quickly. The final alcohol level was 5.5% and there were 960 bottles made. (Fine Estates from Spain, Dedham, MA)
