This is pretty wild. It bridges the gap between red and white wines.
Everything about it is a white... but it has the characteristics and complexity of a red. Wild.
Smells like apricot. Apple jacks.

So yummy - light skin contact makes it have an almost cider-like taste with a clean brightness to finish — 5 days ago
This Calabrian white is delicious! Incredible juicy citrus, pineapple, a little skin contact funk, easy to drink. Quickly becoming my go-to white! — 9 days ago

Almost perfect skin contact for me. — a day ago
An unusual old vines blend of 6 or more varieties farmed to biodynamic principles. Fermented with skin contact. A medium yellow color. Nose of flowers and spice. Intense palate ripe white fruit. Intense mineral backbone. Powerful wine but fresh with some poise. Paired with a rice bowl featuring Haloumi, bacon and Hawaiian avocado. — 3 days ago
PnP. Light yellow with greenish hue. Lime, lemon, white flowers and ginger. High acidity and good tension - a vertical wine. I understand this does a skin contact but I wasn’t able to detect that. Quite enjoyable and refreshing. — 6 days ago
Purple-red, dense, moderately to highly extracted pigment. Raspberry and black currant aromas. Raspberry, cherry flavors with blueberry and menthol on finish, slightly tight in initial pour, light to moderate skin astringency. Toasty smoky barrel aromas and flavors emerge after 30 minutes. A slightly bitter, slightly tart cherry-berry finish and aftertaste also emerge as the wine resolves. Umami shows up after 90 minutes. I appreciate the intention behind the winemaking here; this is not your typical Oregon Pinot, but instead a level beyond. This wine might need additional aging, which surprises me somewhat, but based on how the tasting plays out over the first 90 minutes from opening, it has high skin contact, moderate seed contact, and is probably age worthy given its vinification or processing, the high tannins and high pigment extraction. In essence, I opened this bottle too early. The winemaking style is unusual compared to most Oregon Pinot Noirs. Give this one another two or three years before opening. This could be a really special wine in terms of structure and balance. Unfortunately, this was my only bottle from this vintage... — 11 days ago
