Royal Tokaji Aszu Essencia Hungary 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Thick and dense yet never heavy, with aromas that flit from floral and vegetal to caramel and smoke and back again. There's noticeable sweetness matched by a brisk acidity that need time to integrate. Fine, lingering finish. Seems monolithic today, so be patient. Best from 2003 through 2015.
