On the nose, almost gummy style fruits. Strawberries, cherries, hint of very ripe cooked rhubarb, tangerine, some white citrus, sea spray, nice soft chalkiness & red & pink roses.
The palate reveals; some sweet & sour cherries & strawberry notes, very ripe rhubarb, tangerine, blood orange, passion fruit, lean watermelon, saline, nice grainy grey volcanic minerals that leave a long deep presence on your palate that could be mistaken for spice on the long set, sea shells, beautiful chalkiness, red florals and pink roses, nice round acidity and a long rich, polished finished.

Found the wine initially closed with the bead tight but also aggressive. I noted that when the wine warmed up it was much more expressive. Very nice and well made. Great QPR. — a month ago
Bright raspberry fruit with scone mid palate. Easily overlooked, but clearly the equal of many higher end roses. — 16 days ago
Love this, lemon and brioche, some lime zest. Mouthfeel is grand, and the acid is in check and well balanced. Bravo! — a month ago
