"The 2004 Vinsanto is the eagerly awaited successor to the 2003, which showed more and more class every time I saw it (94 points, Issue 186). This, clocking in at just 9%, could even be better. On first attack, it is remarkably sweet and incredibly delicious (as always). It was just so delectable, it was hard to resist. I wanted to stop tasting and start drinking, but I bravely saved some to sample over the next few days. But that's not all it has and it is by no means a syrupy fruit bomb - it is anything but and well made Vinsanto rarely is. In fact, phase two kicked in pretty fast. The acidity is powerful and it balances the sugar out beautifully. It actually has a mouthpuckering finish early on. There is also tension and intensity on the finish that makes this quite gripping. This is still a baby. If you want to drink it now - you'll find many rewards for doing so. It sure is approachable. But in terms of developing character, it is not showing even a small part of what it will show. These age well (and the drinking window of the 2003 should probably be extended) and with this level of, well, everything, it has the potential to outlive a lot of us. The next day it was slightly richer, even more gripping, longer on the finish and every bit as fresh. On Day 3, it seemed largely unchanged, hardly budging. I'll be reasonable at the moment. Drink now-2050."

2005 Selvapiana Vin Santo del Chianti Rufina

"A beautiful dark caramel color, the 2005 Selvapiana Vin Santo has a viscosity and purity that must be tasted to be believed. Like all Vin Santo, the grapes were dried on straw mats to concentrate the fruit. After vinification it was aged in small barrels. This is an expensive way to make wine but when done right, the result is worth the effort. The mouth feel is viscous yet wonderfully balanced by the framing acidity. Flavors of blood orange, dried apricot, raisins, honey, roasted almonds and savory mint combine beautifully on the complex palate."

2007 Klein Constantia Vin de Constance Muscat

"The 2007 Vin de Constance has an explosive bouquet that sprints out of the blocks with an effervescent, vivacious personality. Citrus lemon, Seville orange marmalade, touches of mandarin and a dash of spice all vie for attention. The aromatics are Sauternes-like. The palate is very well-balanced with a viscous opening, a keen thread of acidity and a bewitching sense of poise and focus. This is probably the finest Vin de Constance to date as it fans out marvellously on the multi-layered finish. This is a startling, world-class wine that gives Yquem a run for its money."
