I bought several of these a while ago, but have not cracked one. This was another case of wanting to try out a few older wines to see where they are before packing them up for the move to Texas. If this bottle is indicative of the others, there is no need to panic. Rich, tropical yet still fun, the wine is wonderfully balanced with great acidity, fruit, and just a hint of sweetness. Giddy-up. Outstanding. thedrunkencyclist.com
Color: Light golden yellow Smell: Alcohol, peach, pear, baked apples, and dried nectarines Taste: Peach, nectarine, pineapple, green apple, and lime. Overall: Very Good...but this used to be Outstanding. I wonder if I'm not being patient enough or if my demands are getting greater.
Consistent with previous bottle in terms of aromas and flavors but the alcohol showed a touch on the nose this time around and the acidity seemed a little less vibrant. Still, a really complex and enjoyable white wine that paired perfectly with grilled sausages and sauteed cabbage and apples.
