Millbrook Vineyards & Winery 2009 Tocai Reserve

This is one of my purchases from Millbrook's Tocai Release Party last month.  I brought home a 3 pack to share with my husband since he stood me up for the event.  It was pretty nice of me, wasn't it.

The difference between Millbrook's Tocai and Reserve Tocai is oak.  The oak really softens the mouth feel on the wine.  Instead of crisp I get a smooth delicate mouth feel which is quite nice.

There is lime and citrus on the nose.  I get pineapple, pear and soft citrus on the taste with grapefruit rind on the finish.

I didn't realize that this wine would sell out so fast.  There was only a couple of cases left after the release party.  I apologize if this is something you would have wanted to try.  You never know where you might find a bottle.
