Excellent white Rhone blend from Paso. This has that nice tropical fruit profile along with a hint of butterscotch, almond and honey. Still fresh and going strong for an '08. There is medium acidity and the finish is medium long.

Wonderful blended flavors of sweet, dark cherries, flowers and spices. Wonderful perfume, juiciness and a very harmonious finish. Great balance and depth. It's layered, complex and very flavorful. Really nice!
