Picked this one up at the Utah State liquor store on a whim. Color was a light amber, just a little darker than straw. Not as viscous as the Dolce or its French siblings. I was a little surprised to see a 2006 so soon and looked over the bottle to be sure that it was not an ice wine. The nose was a bit non-descript. The closest thing I could come up with was 'petrol' or almost a subtle vasoline scent. Not exactly what I would call appealing. On the palate, the sweetness was not overwhelming and this wine has a solid acidity with a true citrisy note on the relatively short finish of about 10-15 seconds. Floral notes, honey and only a slight botrytis note came through.
Not sure I'd buy again, but might be fun for friends doing a bleu cheese tasting. As a stand alone dessert wine, C+
