Sight: Yellow with a bit of viscosity showing
Nose: Citrus notes, peaches, river rock, overall not a real big nose on this one, but I did like what I was getting from it.
Palate: A lot of citrus right up from that transitions to a big mouthful of rocks, not your typical minerality, but a big presence of straight rocky goodness. There is a bit of a spike in an alcohol type flavor just as the wine crosses the mid-palate that quickly goes away as the finish begins. I did taste this wine at near room temperature, so if it was chilled down a bit I bet that spike wouldn't be there. The finish is a decent length with those minerally type flavors carrying through. Overall I enjoyed it and am looking forward to finishing it off this weekend.
Oh and the tip on nose positioning when cameras are around is dang helpful too!
