This wine delivered lots of flavor in a big, galumphy (in a good way) style.
Eye: Very light gold with a slight lime green glint.
Nose: Loads of sweet pears and apples, with two scoops of minerally earthiness and a slight, almost cinnamony spice component.
Mouth: Big, rich, mouthfilling flavors of earth, pear and peach fruit, and a sweet minerality. Long finish with low-ish acidity. More chunky than crisp.
Cellar or drink? Drink over the next 8-12 months.
Price/store: Was $19 and change at Spec's on Smith.
