Wine Review: This yellow wine has a faint earthy, grassy like bouquet with some wood influence. This medium bodied wine is round, viscous, and displays tropical fruit flavors with hints of toasty oak. The finish is dry, smoky, and a bit tingly. The panel thought this wine would pair nicely with salmon and roast turkey. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A fruity, easy drinking wine with tropical fruit aromas and floral aromas, with light grassy notes. Finishes smooth and clean. Share with the "old man" in your life, or pair with broiled fish or curried chicken salad.
