Opened with restrained baked raspberry, spice, cherry and earthy aromas and flavors. On the palate, it's between light and medium-bodied with mouth watering acidity. It got better with some time in the glass. This is one my wife's faves, but I don't think it delivers on the value front. Very food friendly. It was a surprisingly good pairing with Beef Bulgogi.

Sampled at the winery and was surprised by the well rounded fruits and spice. It was delicious so I bought some to take home.

Real smooth, well-balanced wine great for standalone and food-pairings.

We've been drinking so much kind of mediocre wine lately that I forgot what good wine tastes like. This was really good.

One of the highlights of our Sonoma tour in the spring 2016. Deliciously balanced fruit and tannins. Sublime. Need to order more!

Bought this wine in Napa 3 years ago. Sweet, crisp and refreshing - it has a black cherry and raspberry jam taste. Aromatic and not too mineral in the mouth
