This wine was show stoppingly good. I always over rate sweet wines, but this was one of the best I've had in a while. So much energy and a broad spectrum of beautiful sweet flavors coupled with hints of savory. And not a thing cloying about it.

I wish Vin Santo was more readily available in the Midwest. The color of lacquered oak or dark avocado varietal honey. On the nose--Fig, roasted nuts, carmel, dates, prunes, unground cinnamon a bit in the background. Old honey, honeycomb candles. The palate--decadent, rich as oil money. Sticky and inviting with burnt camel, fig paste and honeyed dates dripping across the tongue. Some acidity, but this wine has it's own version of acidity. It's a mouthfeel that doesn't quite have the zippy bright character of apples or fresh citrus. More of an acid from Curacao's sun dried orange peels. Was incredible with a chocolate peanut butter pie that was surprisingly light. Only marks off was for being a little low on full concentration for a Vin Santo, but it'd been open for better than a week. With this style, it's really hard to tell if this already oxidized wine could suffer from any affects of tiring within weeks of opening.

When my wine sweet tooth comes out, it's usually for a Jurançon or a wonderful Vin Santo like this.

Really enjoyed it but as discussed over dinner this puppy can sit in the cellar for decades to come. Absolutely lovely though.

Nice bottle to finish the weekend. Killing it, but still too young. Next bottles should be post 2020. Great leather and toasty notes, mild oxidation, great balance. Color is like a light tawny port, but more red, still translucent, and an intriguing come hither vibe... We drink Vin Santo so infrequently, but wow do I miss this bottle, this producer is a star. Getting back to this bottle after a seven day delay...Wow! Somehow it picked up more acid, fruit and the tawny port-like nose is awesome. Glad we still have a few bottles in hiding.
