This wine has a very complex aroma with hints of apricots and spice. The palate is dominated by tropical fruits, lime and grapefruit in particular and the overwhelming sensation is one of freshness. The finish lingers seductively.

Wine SpectatorShows 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.

Wine EnthusiastAromas 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 AdvocateThe 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.
