I've had ice beers, and for the most part, they've all sucked. And that is the reason why I have been slow to try ice wines, especially when viewing the price for them.

However, for those people who are looking for a good dessert wine, and don't mind spending money for it, I would highly recommend this wine.It's something that I tried at the 2007 Philadelphia Wine Festival, and I am now a big fan of it (I've gotta find where I can get it at a decent price).

Nonetheless, it's vibrant flavor(s) are worthy of a great nightcap with a beautiful woman. This is not what you just whip out for anybody folks.Along with this one, I must say that you have to check out some other Mission Hill wines, as you'll be quite surprised and thankful that you did see what they have up North.
