In the glass: Clear with light yellow highlights.
On the nose: Poured chilled and swirled vigorously, shows coconut, oak, fresh butterscotch and bananas. From the aroma, seems like this will be rich and full.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact very consistent with the aromas, highlighting full, creamy coconut. Some acids pick up as the sip settles, bringing a swift, but entirely clean finish. Oak is apparent but not overwhelming.
In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale. Best value.
