Great showing for this wine.  Still youthful but drinking nicely.  Medium golden in color.  The nose is clean (no diesel) with minerality/wet rocks and some pineapple.  On the palate, this is more about minerals but there is a bitters quality as well.  And the pineapple comes through too.  This is sweet but not overtly.  Well balanced by the acidity.  Long finish.  This will go with a lot of foods and also drink well on its own.  It went great with a spinach salad.  It should continue to mature for the next five to ten years and be good for ten to fifteen more.
