Very much in zone, although perhaps in the back end of said zone. Fruits are well mature, dry and herbal, obviously not fruity. Nice drinking albeit a little 'what ever'. Ok for its age but I've had better aged examples from the standard label. I wonder what this wine started out life as?
Massively slurpable as expected. Palate is a light touch for the style, at least to my tastes, and as a result didn't quite deliver on the generosity as I might have expected. Still, grapey sweetness is pleasant (very), as is the mineral zing on the finish.
