Prominent oak, but has the stuffing to back it up. Like Burgundy with less nuance. Would like to try one of these with a few more years on it.

Was really impressed by this Spanish white. Would not have guessed Spain if drinking blind; I probably would have said high quality Napa Chard.

Thick wine with many dimensions. Peach, cream, and kiwi are balanced perfectly with the right amount of oak. Long finish that really costs the palate.

Try this! I’ll be buying some!

Very minerally with a bit of soil. I can't remember how much I paid for this but if it was less than 15 I might buy a case. As my friend might say, a "dirty white wine". A compliment from me, insult for him.
