Peggy Noe Stevens – 8.0

Nose: Dig in deep with this soft wheat. Feathery citrus and honey light.Slight maple syrup and biscuits.

Palate: Allspice and golden raisin to eventually shine through. Seasoned breadcrumbs. Touch of mint and pineapple.

Finish: Tannins that develop immediately and ease up to a warm and alluring finish.

Comments: The nose will fool you with the “wheaty” softness and then the first sip sings.

Susan Reigler – 7.7 

Nose: Vanilla wafers and hard candy with a little cinnamon and wheat toast. 

Palate: Clean and not overly sweet with more vanilla and some milk chocolate. Ripe apples dusted with cinnamon and just a tiny bit of ginger. 

Finish: Stays sweet for a while before ending with a touch of oak. 

Comments: While not an overly complex sip, it is quite enjoyable and might pare will with pre-diner mixed nuts.
