Very clear pale yellow color.Fairly big nose--stone fruit, vanilla. A bit more fruit than I like to taste on the tip of the tongue--apple or apricot--gives an initial blast of "sweetness." Pretty good acid. Also, that vanilla that I detected on the nose does not show up on the palate. US$47.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana.
