There's a nice dusty mineral note here along with a pleasing combination of tart citrus fruits, baked apples and a hint of blueberries. This shows some richness on the palate, with sweet flavors of apricot and key lime pie all supported by solid acidity. There is a lot of sugar here, though, so this wine is quite sweet, with attractive green fruit flavors and a fine edge of almost creamy sweet apple flavors that show a nice hint of spice and a pithy grapefruit top note. Lacking a bit of nuance, but still quite attractive. 87pts
