Kind of low-toned on the nose with sweet dried chili notes over a bed of preserved lime. Soft and light-bodied with some roundness and nicely integrated acidity. The flavors are a bit simple with an orange/pineapple vibe and a hint of buffering sweetness lending this an easy appeal. Finishes with nice length and good clarity to the mineral and grapefruit flavors. Laidback and a bit easy, but with an appealing set of fresh flavors. 86pts
