2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From sampler flights at Sunset Grill in Boston & Meadhall in Cambridge.
Sample was nearly identical to the dry version.
Pale golden color, so-so clarity.
Grassy/flowery nose. Table wine, caramel, & warm plastic.
Floral, white wine taste. Same as the dry, but with a little more sugar & very little edge to it. Mushroom-y?
Earthy sweetness underlying the dry table wine flavor. More warm plastic/wax. I really don’t enjoy that distinctive flavor. Flabby, semi-dry, caramelized honey finish. Not much noticeably thicker then the dry. Not my favorite.
