Maybe this wine is already past its prime, but given that we aren't that familiar gauging barrel-aged blends of Sauvignon Vert, Pinot Gris, Chard and Torrontés, all we can say is that it comes across odd, resiny and heavy. Barrel notes and mustard flavors aren't all that great, and overall it's chunky, soft and tastes strange.
