- Light gold color with medium forming legs and aromas of kerosene and pineapple. It's lacking fruit and has flavours of melon and diacetyl (butter) with a light/medium body. Fleshy texture with a short finish.
An understated wine that would work well with similar food. Very balanced but lacking some of the brighter fruit flavors I prefer. A little short on the finish as well. I wouldn't wait too long on these if you have them.
The OC Blind Wine Crew goes Italian (Il Barone Ristorante, Newport Beach, CA): Pineapple and lemon custard on the nose that seems polluted with some sort of kerosene note. Rich palate with a strong finish, still showing round and with a touch of heat. The odd note this showed was a surprise for me and marred a wine I had much better expectations for after previous go arounds with Failla wines.
