Tasting note: Firm reduction blocks an assessment of the nose at present. Otherwise there is good volume to the plump and round medium-bodied flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the nicely focused finale that offers acceptable depth and persistence. This isn’t classic in style but it’s appealing in its fashion.
