Pale garnet red, very limpid, with a fragrance of spiced strawberries topped with breezy notes of hayfield and linen. Crystalline and clear on the palate, it has little perceptible tannin but ample acidity. Tart, lean fruits—rhubarb, cranberry—repeat the dominant acid theme. This is a spare, wiry little wine that likes food, and maybe needs it. 13% abv | $17

Wine starts light and lifted full of bright fruits. Very light body and color, strawberries and raspberry with herbs and a trace of cedar.

A little too fruity at the outset, but nice after it was open for awhile.

Tay: "it's fine". Rave review.
I don't like how it smells but it tastes sort of fruity

Notes of cherry, strawberry, and rhubarb, with a hint of jelly cranberry sauce on the finish.

Almost an effervescence of tart strawberry and spice.
