Our review: Light gold in color, this wine has aromas of tropical fruit (papaya, banana, melon) with notes of spiced cider. The fruit flavors on the palate are almost immediately masked by a strange bitterness, not at all reminiscent of the bouquet. The finish is lengthy, but adds little else.

Our rating: This is, simply put, an unpleasant wine. We're not exactly sure what went wrong here, but the bitter fruit flavors are hard to get past. We served our bottle with a chicken dish, decided we wanted to enjoy our meal, and quickly opened something else. A later sampling confirmed our initial impression, that this wine is Inferior.
