Medium straw colour with medium to medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: Very nice aromas of lemon/lime, carnations, cinnamon, pear, apple & limestone. The taste is not as beautiful as the nose but still nice showing lemon, orange, pear, limestone & grapefruit. The wine is medium body with good acidity & medium length.
Negatives: A touch too much grapefruit on the finish. Drink now on its own or pair it with oysters.
Interesting Note: If you like Rueda wines, try the Pedro Escudero 2009 Fuente for $13.95, which is a Best Buy that I reviewed in November 2011.
