Community Tasting Note

    February 21, 2014 - Wines of the Mediterranean: Cheesy, with some pineapple and lemon rind. Texturally very good with nice flow and length. Has richness but also good acidity to carry it.

    I should be there in June, no idea what I'll bring yet but hopefully it'll be better than my last bottle.
