"The Rare series has achieved perfection frequently in these pages. Happily nothing has changed. The Non-Vintage Rare Muscat is brown/black in color with an awesome bouquet of fig, dates, brown sugar, molasses, and chocolate. Layered, amazingly rich, and concentrated, it is a tour de force in winemaking as are all of these Chambers gems.
Chambers Rosewood Vineyards makes my short list of greatest fortified wine producers. The winery was started in 1858 and continues to be owned by the Chambers family. Some of the material for these blends is over 100 years old. As Robert Parker noted in Issue 168, these wines are the product of solera systems so there is very little, if any, difference from release to release."
