A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. This was another wine from Blair's stash that we opened last week. His handwritten scrawl on the label in dicated he bought it in 10/83 from KermitLynch. Normally, one dosn't think of aging a Muscat dBdV. But the once high r.s. is undoubetedly was what carried the day. A bit like an old Muscatel de Setubal, but w/o the oak. A stunning dessert wine.
