This tasty Lebanese blend of Sauvignon Blanc (55%), Semillon (25%), and Chardonnay (20%) has aromas of ripe apple, creamy butterscotch, pineapple, guava, and other tropical fruit, with added spice, lime, raw almond, and a faint touch of marshmallow on the palate, and while it's a bit too sweet and lacks depth, it's quite appealing, the abundant fruit held in check. Unfortunately, the fruit pretty much disappears with time, and by the second day what's left is a stale nuttiness, lemony tartness, and only lingering traces of that earlier flavour burst. Just don't let it get that far.
