one bottle slightly off i think. the other was not bad but was hoping for better from this house. nose was a little non-giving and "stale" without much oomph. the palate is well rounded but just no wow. nice bubbles, nice fruit, nice yeasty, nice, nice and nice. but the man who bags my groceries is nice, very nice in fact. i wanted more than nice from this bottle. maybe lacking in acid which might have brought this up a little. finish is better than average and does keep you coming back.
