Tasting:

    He said: Almost clear, maybe a tinge of straw color. Very light citrus bouquet, but a wonderful combination of citrus and fresh forest floor, with tad of ripe olive and licorice, that continues on into the medium finish. This has to be the easiest drinking wine ever. It’s as smooth as silk, delicious and VERY refreshing. With the smooth Maytag white cheddar it’s absolutely great.

    She said:

    Comments: We picked this wine to celebrate one son moving into a new house in Atlanta and the other son in California selling his house for more than the asking price. A milestone day and a memorable wine that was fitting the occasion.
