Interesting, but a bit disjointed. The predominant flavor is key lime. It also has a touch of ginger and some petrol on the finish. Acid is there, too, but it pops up at the end, rather than providing a solid backbone through the entire experience. The overall sensation is of a wine that was made, rather than grown.
