I got the bottle of Inacayal from my wine club membership: the theme for March was Italian grapes with new world producers. I really enjoyed this bottle.
It had a pale honey color, and even from the initial pour, without even bringing the glass to my nose I was hit with the smell of peaches.
Peaches dominated the taste for me, too. The wine was fresh and ripe, with less acidity than I was expecting - but it didn’t really need the acidity. It was refreshing, though it had a weighty mouthfeel that went well with my dinner: stuffed peppers and roasted asparagus. Though by no means a perfect pairing, the wine cut through the beef in the peppers nicely, and held up to the flavored extra-virgin olive oil and infused balsamic that the asparagus was dressed with.
All in all, an enjoyable bottle. I will be sure to describe the red wine as well once I open it.

Bottles: Had some Food Network "entwine." It was...interesting.
Writing: First pass at a summary finished. Now to make it not crappy.
