I've had two really different tasting experiences with this wine. In the first one, several months ago, the wine came across as pleasant and well-priced but somewhat generic in nature. In this most recent tasting, I found the wine anything but generic, and with lots of energy and flavor interest. Aromas and flavors of lime peel, white flowers, spice, vanilla, and subdued toastiness. Excellent balance of acid and fruit, crisp, pure, and an outstanding bargain. My score leans towards the more positive experience. - HK 2014-07-29
