This is beautifully bottled and priced for loftiness, but this reviewer finds the wine to be fiery, ultra acidic and just not that pleasurable. Cheesy aromas set up a palate with blazing acidity. That leads to sourness that adorns flavors of salt and peanuts. Despite the fancy packaging, this doesn't come across as anything better than good.
