By the color you'd think it was Rose of Cabernet. But no... It's Gris... A ringer for plousard on sight but it even smells of Jura. I don't like Gris that much bit this shit is bombastic for wine geeks.

A. How does an orange wine get this red? B. How is it possible that this is from California? C. Tart and tight.

Very unique. Taste and smells like a can franc rose. Very floral, pencil led note and red plum and cherry. A slight earthiness

This wine has been known to make grown men laugh like a small child, without a care in the world; pure joy.

Good God this is divine! Flinty minerality upfront with all sorts of gorgeous floral and blood orange notes on the backend. This disappeared within 30 minutes.
