Wine Review: This wine’s bouquet jumps out of the glass. It’s very aromatic. It picked up the scent from a foot away. One the palate, the wine is a medium bodied, viscous, and quite acidic wine. This is an interesting feeling. The wine acidity does decrease as the wine warms up. The wine finishes in a fairly long and refreshing fashion. Enjoy – Ken
