This is a fresh, soft white Bordeaux blend that will pair well with white fish. The wine presents with a clear straw color. Those nose is sweet, suggesting key lime pie and a graham cracker crust. On the palate it has tropical fruits, dominated by mango, followed by zesty citrus. Softer tropical flavors are dominant. Drink with grilled grouper. Recommended. 87.
