Drinking this wine is like hanging out with a woman (or man) wearing far too much perfume or cologne. All you can smell is smells. Flowers, trees, grass, fruits (but don’t ask what kind), perfumes, colognes. Whatever you are eating tastes like the smells you are inhaling.
The wine itself is not bad. It just is far too aromatic. Yes, aromas are good. But ten times aroma is not ten times good. It has good (well, decent) acidity, so your palate will not fall asleep.
It’s a good wine to have when your dinner consists only of wine. Or of boring food.
Another use for this wine is to put some of it in a spray bottle. So on cleaning day, if you don’t get around to airing out your house, spray some of it into the air.
It’s about $20 for the box. You could do worse.
