Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Dark lemon yellow with just a touch of green color. Faint, musty melon aroma. Under ripe melon and peach taste, than about mid-palate a tartness comes through and ends bitter. It’s not sweet, but it’s not very flavorful and the bitter finish is a little jarring. Soft acidity and a little mineral, but at best it’s just OK, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

    She said: Clear lemon yellow color with many irregular spaced poking legs. Very mild aroma if any followed by an equally mild flavor. The body was medium, the mouth-feel dry and smooth, the finish was long but bitter. Not great with the dinner nor good sipping, so I have to give it a thumbs down even at $14.44.
