    Rose Muscat 1938
    Gurzuf, Massandra
    Bottle (6)
    Slightly dusty nose with creamy raspberry and maple-covered walnut personality. The palate is very rich but sports good acidity and fresh spirit upon the outset on the palate. If there is a criticism it is that the finish is missing that structure and so the sweetness isn't really kept in check. Though slightly flabby in the tail, this is very good drinking and the body of the wine never oversaturates. I rather wish I had not already tasted 40-something other fortified wines before trying to articulate the balance, because I fear the sugar in the finish is more of a shock in the way my note reads than the actual experience of the wine, but this does have spectacular levels of sugar.
