I just did the ol' stab n' grab with this – I wanted a sparkler at around $15 and pulled this one.
Quite dry and fairly toasty – one of the first sparklers where I'm definitely getting a distinct oak quality. There's a turpentine thing going on on the back palate into the finish. I can't say there's all that much fruit here – some unripe apple or pear. There is some perfumey and floral qualities, maybe lavender or even a slightly turned bad chamomile quality.
Nothing by dryness on the finish.
It ain't bad, but it also ain't worth fifteen bucks.
