An improvement from our prior experience, but still questionable. A honied, exotic nose, gives way to a rich, dense, but angular mid-palate. Angular, due to the sharp acidity, combined with a pronounced, oxidative note. Overall, we consider this to be disjointed. We expect better at half the price.

Good but not great. I detect a degree of oxidation on the nose and palate. Some passion fruits on the mid-palate, but the fruit is submerged below a layer of oak. Subtle acid profile completes what is a disjointed effort.
