Taste profile from the winemaker: None found.

ABC Wines review: This wine has aromas of tropical fruit and honey with some very pleasing spice notes. The palate has a brisk acidity that seems to mask the fruit flavors. The finish is quite astringent and though the fruit flavors increase in intensity here they taper off into something that is bitter and unbalanced. Our score: Not a bad wine by any means but somewhat disappointing nonetheless. Just Average.
