First time with this wine coming from Bald Mountain Vineyard, aged 14 months 40% new French Oak. Local grocery wine department was giving these away at $10 per bottle; given the age and 13.5 alc. I decided to try it!

Not disappointed; presents with golden apples, pear, guava, honey, toasted almonds, chamomile tea, cheese rind, lemon balm and very soft oak.
I imagine in its youth this wine might have been more buttery but with a few years it has evolved nicely! Consider QPR I would pick up a few more of these....just for fun!
