Cherry and jolly rancher coming through with a tangy jerked spice note on the finish.

Having sat on a DC liquor store shelf for most it's life, it, surprisingly still has life to it! Barnyard funk and muted baking spice, pungently sharp, it is a survivor. Chocolate and small vanilla notes on the palate. Maybe a touch of cherry cola as well.

The nose reminds me of a Jura trousseau from Rollet : strawberry, hay, cherry too. Smells like something oxidised a small tad. The palate is soooo good. Strawberry all over the place, good acids, perfect balance, long finish with strawberry, silky tannins. I just want to go and visit some more malborough Pinot again

Pretty good varietal definition. Berries, earth and a touch of oak for depth and complexity. It's just as refreshing as their Sauvignon Blanc to boot.

Not my favorite. I'm not a fan of the strong plum aroma. Drink quickly after opened!
