Really Nice!
by Fannin10580945
Copious apples and pears, with a touch of lemon, on the nose. Outstanding fruit with a touch of honey; long finish. Very good acidity, but never harsh. Even better second day with no loss of crispness on the finish. Should cellar really well. Super quality for the price!

If you get more, I'll take two cases.
