 Vinous 92 points (Jun 2014)
High-toned aromas of apricot, white raisin and spices. Supersweet but with bracing but harmonious acidity energizing the pure apricot flavor. At once sweet and salty on the back end, boasting superb retention of pure fruit. Showed a slightly edgy quality with 24 hours in the recorked bottle.
 Wine Enthusiast 91 points (Apr 2014)
Aromas of butterscotch, apricot preserves and vanilla caramel lead to flavors of quince preserves and apricot tart. Round in the mouth, it shows excellent structure and delights with refreshing acidity on the finish.
 Wine Spectator 92 points (Jun 15 2014)
Shows some intensity, with aromas and flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, clove and dried apricot. This is vibrant and tangy, offering a long aftertaste that introduces smoke and mineral elements. Drink now through 2028. 21,129 cases made. -BS

The 2008 Tokaji Aszu Red Label 5-Puttonyos (known as “Blue Label” everywhere else apart from the United States) has an attractive, comparatively uncomplicated bouquet with notes of dried honey, wax resin and a smear of marmalade. The palate is actually better than the nose, with pleasant, nutty, honeyed fruit (marmalade and quince to the fore), although the finish is a little abrupt. Still, for the price, this is a perfect introduction to the delights of Tokaji Aszu.

Wine maker notes
This perfectly balanced 5 puttonyos wine is now widely available throughout the world. Royal Tokaji’s 1st growth Nyulaszo vineyard is the benchmark for quality. As in all aszu wines, the three grape varieties are Furmint, Harslevelu and Muscat de Lunel. The characteristics are a vivid gold colour with honeyed apricot and orange peel flavours which are uplifted with dramatic acidity.
