Vidal is a workhorse variety that doesn't get a lot of respect (except perhaps when made into icewine), but in the right hands, it can be made into some very palatable and well-priced table wine, of which this is a prime example. What really surprised me is how tropical and exotic this one is, with a very pronounced lychee note in the nose. Since this was not mentioned in the pro reviews, it appears that the wine has continued to evolve in the year or so since they tasted it. I wouldn't bet on its longevity, but it's drinking very well right now.
