Lime and pineapple with floral notes. Finishes long with juicy tropical fruit. Good news... Very pleasant wine that brought a smile to my face. Bad news... There are too many rhone blends that are on the market that present a better value. That being said, I'd buy it again.

Last summer we got into the bad habit of putting big halves of yellow peaches on the grill. The juicy caramelized peach halves would then get served up atop a thick slice of pound cake with a decadent scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Ok, back to the wine. The peaches are there and they're Adele-ish peaches. Citrus blossoms and gardenia tickle your nose. The density of pound cake fills up the middle and vanilla hints around on the finish joined by a streak of limestone and a handful of toasted pistachios. I'm adding the pistachios to the dessert next time.

Well built with nice citrus and floral. I would prefer more depth in the nose and on the palate, flavors are a little light.
