Bright, lifted, translucent. Fresh and mineral, melange of tart cherries, dried flowers, pink peppercorns, herbs de Provence, stonefruit. Acid driven and very refreshing, almost Gamay-like in how quaffable it is

Some strawberry started peeking out from behind the lively acid as a reminder that I’m drinking this way too young. But it’s oh so sippable!

Deceptively light, but packs plenty of power and density. Moderate fruit and spice aromas and flavors. Significant length. Said to be the last vintage for this wine. Needs a little time.

Very light, but well rounded, good with food but most enjoyable pre or post meal as a stand alone. Sippable, fruit forward, with a slight peppery finish.

Fascinating in its subtlety & lightness of touch-yet has a real tannic backbone & dry finish. 13.2% alcohol!
