Our Review

The nose is slightly earthy, with a hint of wood and a vaguely tropical fruit note. The flavors are light and lean, with notes of peach and melon. There's a bitter, flaky finish, but the overall impression is of a wine that gets better with age. Good as an alternative to Pinot Noir or Malbec.
