Taste profile from the winemaker: "Tropical flavors of pineapple and passion fruit married with delicate French oak complement spicy ethnic cuisine. This wine is a pleasing blend of fruit from Lake and Mendocino counties. Try it with goat cheese rolled in an endive leaf, topped with fresh minced herbs."

ABC Wines review: Aromas of overripe tropical fruit with herb and spice notes are evident upon opening this wine. Somewhat watery with little fruit character on the palate, the flavors quickly diminish into an acidic, woodsy, and distinctly unpleasant finish. Our score: Very disappointing and gives organic wine a bad name. Quite possibly the worst wine we've tasted in years. Undrinkable.

Winery website: Frey Vineyards. This wine is no longer available from the Frey website. The bottle image is similar, though not identical, to the wine reviewed.
