The prodigious, dark amber-colored Calliope Rare Tokay boasts colossal aromatics and flavors of melted caramels, coffee, toffee, candied fruits marinated in cognac, magnificent richness, and a huge finish that lasts over 70 seconds. My tasting notes for these wines were virtually identical to those from my report in issue #155 as the solera blends for these cuvees remain essentially the same. I did rate the Victoria Tawny slightly higher this year. Readers just need to be aware that these fortifieds must be tasted to be believed as they are among the world's most profound after-dinner fortified wines. This blend represents the newest bottled offerings from this Rutherglen producer, an area that produces spectacular fortifieds, especially the Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle). Its freshness, good acidity, soaring aromatics, and unctuous flavors must be tasted to be believed. Wine Advocate #161 (Oct 2005) Robert Parker
