So many layers. Bright fruit and forest floor and spice. Great value.

Nose of homemade cranberry sauce, full of berries, cloves and mandarin orange. This is light, bright acidic cranberry goodness. Yes.

Undeniably delicious and juicy, but still has plenty going on beneath the surface. Throughout the course of the bottle, secondary aromas of stem and herbs intermingle with sweet florals, funky mineral and dusty earth. Ridiculous value at $20 and an absolute standard bearer for Bay Area natty juice. I wish this was just available everywhere, any time.

Easy to recommend as a summertime red. Sub for a PN or a Beaujolais and you won’t be sorry.

Muscular, with good zest, definition, and savory tones.

65 Carignan, 20 Valdigué, 15 Syrah. Like a Cru Beaujolais blended with a funky Syrah. Purple red violet rim. Smoky boysenberry, light smoke, stone. Super concentrated berry flavor strong acid, mouth coating, minor bitterness and astringency. Medium finish. A full flavor, quirky BBQ wine.
