The nose is by interesting – intensely tropical, showing pineapple and guava. The same flavors show in the palate, joined by mango. Almonds show on the mid-palate. The finish is mid-length. Mouthfeel is quite rich. The overall sensation is fresh and tropical. Drink with grilled shrimp. Recommended. DH.
