06/14/17 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (PORTUGAL) 13%; est. 1985; 70% loureiro, 30% arinto. Fizzy. Banana and apple blossom still. Premature./ Again. Too early like so many of the 16 roses to date. The screwcap is such an hermetic closure that the wines often need a few more weeks/months of bottle aging before fulfillment. 15.0++.
