Apple, lemon, slate and hints of grapefruit & butterscotch. Good acidity and minerality.

I don't know how but this got worse. More and more bitter. In the end I just couldn't finish it. Bad bottle?

Really good for $7! Plum and oak. Always a consistent wine at this price point.

Not as full bodied as some but a nice balance and nice finish. I will certainly buy again
