Aaron:  Pineapple leaves (not the fruit) crowded the bark-infested nose of this dry wine.  Slightly bitter with mostly green fruits and some moderate honeydew, I noticed trees and dirt throughout the flavor.  I’d recommend pairing this with (spicy) food instead of drinking as a stand-alone.  88 points

Teri: I haven’t seen to many wine makers making 100% Verdejo. This wine has a buttery cantaloupe nose with light fruity flavors of honeydew, green apple, and lemon on the finish. The wine is dry overall with medium finish and body. Very easy to drink and enjoy. It is not overly complex but has great flavors and would be great with food. 90 points
