Lifted notes of fresh cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry at the back. Ruby with moderate concentration and little staining. Dried lavender, black pepper, marzipan, elevated acidity, medium tannin, elevated to full body. Interesting blend, wouldn’t have guessed there were Mourvèdre or Merlot in it.

Great blend, fruit, spice, texture, contemplative yet easy

Well it sure is fresh and funky.

Whether you like it depends on your tastes. It's tart, almost to a fault, and exhibits all of and none of the classic markers for whatever grapes were used in this blend. It's gimmicks for gimmicks sake, and while I understand it, I don't have to like it.

Cali vin de soif mod version, fun if not a bit one note on the sour spectrum.

JL tasting 5/8/18. ABV 13.3. $19. Mostly Merlot, only 10% Grenache (see NYT). Very interesting nose with salinity and sense of freshness. Great palate balance ave long finish. Yummy and elegant.

Loved this. A nice effervescence/ freshness on opening and paired great with salty BBQ pork tacos.
