This is not the final name of this wine. I am working on an appropriate classical reference, perhaps from Dante's Inferno.

This is Sauvignon Blanc from Farina, harvested late in 2013 with a potential alcohol of a little more than 17%. We took a tiny bit of the wine--15 gallons-- and allowed it to ferment till it stopped: at about 16%, with 10 grams per liter of residual sugar. The wine is viscous and dense, and barely sweet. It is so odd. Not quilte like a dessert wine but not at all like a normal Sauvignon table wine.

It is extreme and intense and supremely delicious. It is a tour-de-force of complexity and interest. In its sweetness, it goes nowhwere near cloying. It can transfix you.
