Light gold in color.  The nose is very tight at first.  With air, slight pineapple and slight simple syrup.  On the palate, this is a bit flabby.  Thinner in texture.  Slight minty note.  Slight melons.  OK on the finish.  Not as good as prior Rieslings from this producer.  It is a solid Riesling but a bit more cut would be nice.
