Young Palomino from Tenerife. I know these wines are meant to be aged, but I enjoyed this 2018 bottle. It did not have the oxidation noted by many reviewers, but instead was a tropical-flavored wine with notes of pineapple and other fruits, that after being open for at least 30 minutes had a finish of vanilla and cream. Quite complex and enjoyable, but more of a Summer wine than one appropriate for dinner. Great for picnics. I’ll need to try an aged bottle some day to understand this wine.
