7.1

Lowest common denominator in flavor profile. Sweet pineapple juice in the middle. Butter bomb oak on the finish to dry it out enough to make it palatable.

Delightful buttery flavor with hints of banana and melon. Captivating to the last drop.

Plush, easy, yummy. Lots of dark berry and spice. Good texture without being overtly dry. I dig this wine.

2012 spellbound is more buttery than the 2011. Still easy finish, but surprising with all the butter at the front
