This wine has changed appreciably over the last six months, but it still maintains its zingy, zesty, frenzied personality. It's no match for a good Sancerre but a very enjoyable wine for casual drinking. We've gone through at least half a case since last summer; I always reach for it when we order a Margarita pizza (basil, fresh tomato, garlic and cheese).
The color has deepened a bit but is still a very light yellow. The aromas and flavors are fresh and lively--grapefruit, a hint of green pepper and some passion fruit merging into cat pee. Oh yes, for cat pee, it's amazingly attractive so I have to think of it as passion fruit. Any pretenses to seriousness that might have been present six months ago are now completely gone. The finish leaves a distinct impression of Florida grapefruit, even with the pleasingly fat bitter note at the end.
The wine is still available for $9.99 at D&W FreshMarket, and you can get a 10% discount if you buy six bottles.
