Sometimes wines called sec are low in flavor but not this time. Plus early, middle, late character and nice balance. Standing up well to grilled smoked salmon with pesto noodles. Admirable 12% ABV. Wine Cask $11.99. Well worth it.

Melon and wool on the nose. Gripping, with decent longevity to the finish. Nice acid, which is what makes this wine work at all. Drink now.
