Crazy buttered popcorn, caramel and milk chocolate nose. Spritely buttery palate so sharp and acidic, glowing nectarine and plum across ripe-pear railroad ties. Solid cardboard in entry, a mahogany middle governed by applesauce and a finish proving the big houses can actually make wine. Whaddaya gonna do? Hate all you want–this is stupidly gorgeous nutty rich fun.
