That 15.7% alcohol level is not a misprint. Yet this wine shows not a hint of heat or overly-alcoholic character. Rather, it is wonderfully crisp and precise in feel, with loads of flavor suggestive of stone fruits, honied citrus, dry straw, sweet spice, spring flowers. Fresh as a daisy at age 5. - HK 2018-04-19
