Far more lean and raw than expected, with an overriding green tobacco note to the nose. Grassy on the palate, with raspberry and a bit of rhubarb. Finishes sweety and jammy, with some protruding tannins. Not a bad wine but disappointing compared to the previous vintage. Imported by Global Vineyard Importers.
Waxy to the max, with baked apple, dry spice and plenty of oak on the bouquet. Thick and mouthfilling in terms of texture, with creamy melon and sweet apple flavors. Turns pithy, stalky and bitter on the finish.
This blowsy wine is waxy on the bouquet, with aromas of nectarine, pineapple and vanilla. It sports a chunky mouthfeel and tropical flavors, primarily pineapple accented by vanilla. On the finish, things fall off to stalky.
