Pineapple, beeswax, and gooseberry on the nose. Medium-to-full bodied with racy acidity, lots of fruit, and lengthy aftertaste. Brilliant wine at the price.

Pretty average, but still a decent bargain at $12.95 a bottle. Some tropical fruit, green apples, and light oak on the palate. Good length on the finish. Tasted October 2012.

Ate with a seafood pasta in a white wine-cream-fines herbes sauce. Paired very well.

Has high levels of alcohol and acidity. Has a fruity nose with sweet notes. Easy on the palate. Tasted Oct 2013. Will let another bottle sit for two years and see how it mellows and taste again then.
