Our review: Medium, almost amber, gold in color, this wine has aromas of spiced (cider-like) tree fruit with strong notes of citrus and honey. The palate is surprising thin, flavor-wise, with little depth. It is a bit acidic and slightly reminiscent of unripened citrus fruit. There is little finish.

Our rating: This wine disappointed us, and we're wondering if maybe it might be past its prime here and not aging well. We served our bottle with a chicken and rice dish, which helped soften some of the rough edges, but didn't really improve it much. Sad to say, we didn't even finish our bottle and rate it Inferior.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.
