Still afraid to try it again, for a Dessert wine 4 oz. should be enough on this one
I love this dessert wine. It is hot, floral scented and tastes like apricot candy, although the taste of grapes is distinct. If you go into it loving the taste of alchol and peaches or apricots you will not be dissapointed. DEFINATELY not for everyone. I think this would be more fun than marsala with ricotta or other cheesy desserts, and maybe with some spritzer water. Save the unused portion for cooking. Chilling it makes it less sweet. The bottle is really elegant and distinctive, and looks beautiful on a table.
I enjoyed it. A poor man's Sauternes---or, perhaps a palatable dessert wine that you don't feel compelled to finish in its entirety, like a fine/pricey Sauternes.

A nice, reasonably priced dessert wine (I got it for $13.99). Massive floral nose with orange blossom. Apricots and peaches on the tongue.
