From a high-altitude side east of Occidental, lovingly tended by Ulises Valdez until his untimely death last year (hence the "UV" on the label). Nose-tweaking, rich tropical fruit and roasted nut aromas. Intense in the mouth with a melange of flavors touching on orange marmalade, crème caramel, burnt sugar, saffron, toast, nuts, botrytis. Saline tingle in the finish. As delicious as this wine is right now, I think it should be drunk up in the near future since some of its nuances are showing old age symptoms. - HK 2019-08-10
