Figured I would try to get another chain going but with dessert wines specifically.

2017 Abbazia di Novacella Moscato Rosa Praepositus

Opened over the weekend, but enjoying the heck out of it on tonight's pour.
quite interesting. Pretty dark, yet heavy citrus flavors. Still quite tannic too.

Recently a 2007 Mark and Spenser VP. A friend gave it to me when we meet in Portugal a couple years ago (he lives in the UK). Made by TFP, I’m quite sure this is a relabeled Romariz VP based on new label and cork. An early maturing Vintage Port that was quite tasty and enjoyable.
I'm a Port drinking fool!

We made two dessert wines, V. Sweet Melodies 100% Viognier that we arrest the fermentation and ultra filtrate and cold stabilization. Pops in at about 11-12%. It’s very pretty. The other, our Don Miguel named after Juan’s father is very, very pretty. It is a late harvest maybe a week-10 days post harvest, 50/50 Merlot and Cab Sauv. That we age for 2-3 years. It comes in at about 34 Brix, RS ~ 60 GM/liter. Gregory dal Piaz wrote this note a couple of years ago about Don Miguel when he wrote about Veleta. https://www.simplybetterwines.com/domin ... wines.html
This Is unusual. It smells like a red wine, powerfully fruity but with a strong, if integrated, oak element lending spice to the jammy black currant, prune, and blackberry aromas of the nose, it smells a little like Napa Cabernet. In the mouth this is obviously note Napa Cabernet. It’s mildly sweet within the dessert wine spectrum, high acid, fresh, and complex. There’s an underlying truffly, nutty element lending this real complexity that is layered with peppery spice, dark, candied, but not sticky fruit, baking spices and leather and dried tobacco nuances. The finish is terrific as the wine sheds most of its sweetness and reveals a more intense core of earthy, spicy, and candied fruit flavors that are fresh and vivid through the long finish. This is really not very sweet, which makes it ideally sweet for my palate. Break out the cheese board, or dried cakes and cookies to pair with this. Perhaps not the greatest dessert wine on the market today, though this is one of the most food friendly and flexible examples of dessert wines I’ve yet to come across.91pts
Both of these were offered on BD12 as Stickies and they’re also in the Veleta Sampler pack.

Barolo Chinato Cocchi. Hard to find for me at times, but it is a unique dessert wine that I have come to love.

Sounds like you should start drinking more of them. I often turn to splits of the more affordable Sauternes. Sort of my everyday drinkers of desert wines. All of these below I bought for $17 or less. Great qpr

When comparing Petit-Vedrines for $15 or Doisy Vedrines for $21, I always pick the grand vin. Sauternes more than almost any other wine is all about the berry selection.

Had 2 different dessert wines tonight.

Opened a 2009 Karlsmühle Lorenzhöfer GKA - lovely if not as complex as one would hope for in GKA, but hard to complain when you get it for 20 bucks!

After two weeks, finished a 375 of 2001 Suduiraut. As Ashish noted in the other thread, perhaps one of the best Sauternes produced in the last 25 years! I haven’t had the chance to follow ‘01 Rieussec and Climens over the course of several days, but I’d say that at this point Suduiraut is the clear best of the three “super seconds” of Sauternes. Haven’t tried a Yquem yet and will wait until 2026 before popping one of my own (maybe someone will share one with me before then lol).

Enjoy it because they won't be making those any more! Oremus has good vineyards and good wine making.

This January :
- Weingut Keller , Riesling auslese Goldcapsel Nierstein Hipping 2015 : delicious but I would wait to open this for at least another 5 years
- Chateau Coutet 2016 : excellent , sweet with a salty touch
- Chateau Coutet 1983 : delicious , fully ready now
- Climens 2003 and Lafaury Peyraguey 2003 : slight preference for the LP
- Yquem 1983 : outstanding bottle , all power and sweetness .
- 1893 d'Arche : what a treat , bought 2 bottles at auction , they were both fine . Still beautiful sweetness combined with nice acidities , rich and creamy .

Finishing a previously Coravin’d bottle of 2003 Rieussec. Very nice.

Sorry for the late response, but judging by the 1970 Taylor’s I had at Christmas I’d say the 1994 is drinking well now and will do so for the next 25-30 years.

The 1995 vin de paille from Chapoutier ( half bottles ) was excellent : deep brown in color , with nice acidities , fully ready . Unfortunately , the second bottle was corked .
Doisy Daene 1973 was a risk and it did not pay out : beautiful color and nice nose but the wine was tin and short .

Several days ago but just discovering this thread :p

1990 Yquem
Honeyed and delicious with not a hair out of place. I like that the fruit is diverse, and not the overwhelming dried apricot that older Sauternes can sometimes show. A better showing than a bottle opened 5 years ago, with an extra level of complexity and interest. Very good minus

Had the 1995 vin de paille on vacation this summer. We purchased it at the winery many years ago. Lovely wine.

Good to know! I have a half bottle that I was going to drink soon.

I opened a 2007 Climens half last night. Too young, but I'll try it again today and tomorrow and see if it improves.

2014 Krupp Brothers M Block Dessert Cab Sauv.

Paraphrasing Dr. Krupp on the reason for this wine:

‘Whoopsies! We forgot to harvest these rows of Cab, so we turned them into a dessert wine’.

Most recently- 2012 Brooklyn Winery Fortitude.

Fortified Zinfandel from Lodi grapes.

Not a style I've come across before, but thoroughly delicious. Big dried dark fruit flavors, lots of vanilla, and not overly sweet.

Yes! Let's get this chain going. Dessert wine is my jam.

Tonight I think I'm going to go for the 2000 Morandé Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc.

A mutual friend acquired a cellar last year and I acquired several dessert wines. None of them are high-value but all were interesting picks.

2019 Max Ferd Richter Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese*** Fass 42

Opened from a 375 mL. Somewhat mute nose of mostly yellow peach and pineapple. The palate, on the other hand, is a glorious cornucopia of pineapple, starfruit, orange peel, yellow peach, fig, almond paste, and lilac. Almost BA-like. Silky in texture with great dry extract, leaving pleasant tropical and dried fruits on the finish with ripples of acidity. Super excited to see how it shows tomorrow.

Doisy Vedrines 1996 . Lovely wine , creamy apricots and peaches . Vastly underrated wine , I think Neal Martin scored it 89/100 .
But it’s much better than that . Drink a glass a day for a week and you will be so happy !

Little taste of Dows Crusted Port, 2004 bottling. Really nice and fully mature, in the zone of what I want from most Late Bottled Vintage but don't usually get.

I had a 1992 Taylor Porto and a 2005 Yquem last night as our monthly steakhouse group had our first dinner together since March 2020. The Taylor was good but needs at least another decade. The Yquem was lovely and stole the show, with perfect measures of richness, sweetness, and tartness.
