Cellar/Tasting Notes "Strong sulfur renders the nose almost unreadable and about all that can be discerned is that the underlying fruit appears ripe. There is good volume to the rich, mouth coating and delicious medium weight flavors that offer outstanding intensity along with excellent length. If this can add depth in..
Cellar/Tasting Notes Fresh melon and green apple notes intermixed with hints of mango and pineapple, zesty acidity and subtle oak all make for a delicious, full-throttle wine.
