Pale yellow gold. Nose: Musty; too much oak - like a bad attempt at Cal. Chard. Palate: simple. Not as overly oaky as the nose suggests, but still too much for me. Taste is just a bit "off", almost like it's cooked. Perhaps this would have been better a year or two ago
I couldn't really get into this wine. The nose is decent with some tropical candy, green apple, butter, lemon and a little minerality. Some of the fruit comes through on the palate. What I really don't like is the mouthfeel. It's quite oily with very little acidity. I can't see this wine pairing well with food. I think almost anything you could eat would overpower it. I think the drink dates are about right; If you have this wine drink it now.
