Our review: This light-bodied wine is straw in color and very aromatic, with a fragrance of tropical fruit (pineapple), tree fruit (peach), and spice. The palate has an interesting, earthy character, with a good balance between the fruit flavors and acidity. The finish is complex and of considerable length.

Our rating: We rather enjoyed this wine, with the second glass (after being opened for 15-20 minutes) being better than the first. Moderately priced, it’s a fine choice for most meals. Above Average, nearly Excellent.
