Member Review by barri0s1872:

The first try: this wine is amazing!!!! i can't express how smooth, silky, with slight tropical notes and oozing with lychee and notes of roses on the nose! To die for! Second try: i recently had this after years of shelving it, and boy did it change; the lychee was still there but it recalled more eccentric notes of burning eraser, cauliflower, matches, and the usual lychee thing going on beneath with a tad bit of sweetness. And it's so wonderfully balanced between acidity and pizazz
