Review:
A delicious kabinett, elegant midpalate, with white raspberry and ruby grapefruit flavors that extend to envelop notes of dried pineapple and hints of eucalyptus on the finish. Needs a year or two to come together, but all the elements are there. Best from 2021 through 2033. 205 cases imported. –AZ
