95 points "Wine Advocate August 2004 92 pts. The dense amber-colored non-vintage Muscat exhibits a sweet nose of toffee, maple syrup, and figs along with huge body, and no cloying sweetness because of good acidity. Wine Advocate August 2003 92 Pts. The non-vintage Muscat reveals a dark amber color in addition to gorgeous aromas of molasses, prunes, maple syrup, and toffee. Justifiably renowned for their tremendous dessert wines, Campbell’s four cuvees all performed impressively well, making one wonder if the price difference between the regular and rare offerings is really worth it. Certainly there is a bit more complexity and intensity to the Rare Tokay and Rare Muscat, which emerge from a solera system averaging 60 years of age. In any event, the tasting notes for all four wines are nearly identical to any of the great Australian fortifieds, such as Buller, Chambers Rosewood, etc. " Best 2002-2007
