Bottle opened Sunday evening by my wife, ⅔ left in frig until I got home Thursday night. Air helps this wine when it's young, so it was in a great spot. Textured and savory, with acid and minerality to balance.

First wine from Amador. Not the acid & minerality of Loire Chenin but lovely & tasty food pairing.
