This fabulous Trockenbeerenauslese-like sweet wine is one of the better sweet wines I've ever tasted from the U.S. Perfumed aromas of citrus blossom honey, poached pears, peaches, and orange marmalade. Exceptional depth of fruit in the mouth yet with the acid balance to avoid being overly heavy or oily or clumsy. Elegant, spectacularly rich, impeccably made sweet wine that is worth the price. [Price is for 375 ml bottle.] - HK 2011-01-05
