Jackson-Trigg Proprietor's Reserve Vidal Ice Wine 2007 wine review by (PB)

Pretty golden hue throwing off enticing aromas of ultra sweet, mandarin oranges, hints of pineapple, and a slight toasted sugar glaze of Creme Brulee and aromas reminiscent of Botrytis--the "helpful" mold that makes the Sauternes and other late harvest dessert wines so wonderful.

Palate--Velvety filling texture with nicely balanced apricot nectar front, great acid foundation to balance the sweetness, and and a lush tropical fruit finish that lasts a loooong time afterwards. 10-15 minutes later I am still tasting this awesome wine.

This was a gift from friends and what a treat this is. It will cost you around $20 for a 375 ml bottle and its worth every penny so raise a glass!
