1996 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Mezes Mály 6 Puttonyos
Distinctive wine. With its resiny element, the aroma reminds me of an antique shop. On the palate, it's fresh and focused, with marmalade and mineral flavors. Medium-bodied and more rustic in style than its peers, yet with personality and intensity. Drink now through 2015.
Wine & Spirits
The vines for this wine were only 12 years old in 1996, yet they gave a wine that's plush with flavor, all candied kumquat, golden raisins, apricots and orange-blossom honey. Laden with spice, this has a rummy feel, warming and dark, for winter drinking.
