    Rose Muscat 1955
    South Coast, Massandra
    Bottle (6)
    None of the younger Rose Muscat South Coast show anywhere near this level of development, but if I hadn't tasted them before this 1955 I would never have believed that this was developed at all. The nose has that beautiful cassis and cherry nose along with a good dose of mint and a little bit of tea. It grows more complete and complex in the glass, which is quite satisfying, though the spirit begins to heat up if you spend too much time delineating the aromatic profile. On the palate the wine is dense and well balanced, though the spirit does more for the structure than the acid balance by itself. At this age it is unlikely that the spirit will ever take over but in a much younger wine that would be the concern. Still, it remains elegant despite the overt presence of the alcohol that manages to not give heat to a beautiful drink that has a long maple and cherry finish. (95+pts FCM)
