Screwcap. Pretty, pale orangey pink. Mix of red fruit and some estery fermentation aromas. Mouthwatering,dry first impression and taking a careful path between fruit and finesse. Good length but just a slight note of candy at the very end. (JH)

Wine Spectator (2017)88 pts

Offers lively strawberry and blood orange granitée flavors that keep their juicy weight through the engaging finish. Pinot Noir.

Vinification Notes
