Smells better than it tastes. Can’t shake off the hipster.

Light pink orange hue. Really high toned fruit and herb. Delicious flavor, light bodied but well rounded. Nose day two seemed a little leathery in addition to the cherry fruit. I will cellar some.

This is a great release from a great team. Beautifully bright red, almost bordering on pink in color. Red flowers on the nose. Tart red fruits on the palate. A total value buy for domestic PN.

This is a really great shift in styles, with more generosity and texture than in the past.

Showed brilliantly. Light and feminine in style, plenty of tart red fruit with impressive layering. A joy to taste.
