Pretty, very light. Translucent. Aromatic. Showed very well beside a nice Burgundy. 12.5 % alc. I’m envious.

Elegant but with plenty of intensity. Complex already with notes of black raspberry, wild strawberries, spices and silky tannins.

Doesn't have the elegance of the Sandhi La Cote, but has all the nuance. Very complex nose and palate. Bigger framed than the Sandhi. @June's All Day, Austin TX

Out of the bottle this wine stayed closed longer than Bloom's Field. Tighter more wound up wine that seems to need time to develop. I would love to taste this wine every year for the next ten...should improve substantially over time as non-fruit components come forth with more presence and profile.

Proof that natural wine making is risky, real and it's WONDERful. Has such a sense of place. Gush gush gush....

Sensing a briny, fresh seaweed theme here that provides a wonderful, lush mouthfeel. Lighter red fruits up front and tightly wound dark finish.
