All Saints Estate N.V. 1920 Museum Rutherglen Muscat, Rutherglen,

(US$1400; 500ml), Fortified

Score: 99

"The solera for the remarkable 1920 Museum Rutherglen Muscat was begun in the 1930s. It has been aging in large oak ovals until recent racking to decanters for this release. Chocolate brown in color, it offers up an ethereal bouquet of figs, dates, raisins, English toffee, and more. Amazingly complex and powerful on the palate, at the same time it is vibrant and balanced. Words simply cannot do it justice. However, should you wish to taste it, be prepared to pay a pretty penny."
