Seems smooth, mellow. I'm not an expert but I don't detect much mallow. Pear notes. Repeat, I am not an expert!

Nice amount of oak and creaminess. A bit of a citrus taste with a smooth medium finish.

More oakiness than expected but complex layers of fruit and vanilla . Slight citrusy finish but very nice. I like it more than Mary. $14.99 @The Grapevine.

Delicious with a full body, a green grassy start followed by a full, earthy finish and a nice hit of tannins. Drinks like a red

Green apple, Asian pear, a little but not too much butter, light hint of pepper spice.
