Minneapolis Wine Club: Double Blind BYOB Event (Shari's House, Mpls, MN): Medium gold color. PNP, drank 1 glass blind over 30 minutes. The nose shows apricot, pineapple, white peach, subtle florals. The palate is quite sweet, apricot, pineapple, apple, lacks supporting acid, light body, subtle spice. This is young and hopefully will take on some weight with time. 89+pts.
In Vino Veritas Session 5 (MIT): Yummmmm. Light gold color. *Very* fruity - mango and candied peaches on the pretty ester-y nose with relatively light botrytis. A *lot* of mango on the palate, botrytis and acid on the front, just a little flabby in the mid-palate. Finishes a bit spicy and a little cloying. Delicious, and would be absolutely spellbinding if the acid-sweetness balance was just a little better. 12.5%, $46.
