Rated 94 Points by Roy Hersh (ForTheLoveofPort.com): FTLOP 6th Anniversary Celebration. Bottled in 2007. Interesting that I just wrote up a note (later in this newsletter) on the awe inspiring 1952 Kopke, which this often competes with, but even though 1957 is my birth year, I do prefer the older vintage. Extremely dark amber color and golden edge. Expressive notes of herbs, butterscotch, burnt sugar and roasted nuts. The palate is medium-bodied and understated, delicate, almost buttery smooth, intricately layered with green caramel apple, praline, apricot jam and toasted almond flavors. It?s surprisingly light in acidity, but this Kopke had just enough oomph to remain lip-smacking and delicious with a sumptuous mouthfeel and ridiculously long finish. I?d drink this any day of the week!
