I'm a sucker for sweet wines...even average ones.

This is a decent, if unremarkable, Tokaji Aszu. Aromas of Greek honey, fresh white mushrooms and the classic, slightly stinky, waft of botrytis fungus. Mid-weight, mid-sweetness, mid-everything. But a perfectly enjoyable after-dinner dessert wine. It's certainly no Royal Tokaji, and Sauternes and icewine lovers may be underwhelmed at it's relative lack of depth. But I guarantee if you serve a glass of this to everyone after dinner, or with some blue cheese, no one (except perhaps experienced Tokaji aficionados) will complain.
