Aromatic Bouquet of dried rose and violets, distinct native yeast like funk, bret perhaps? Lively acidity and soft velvety tannins. Persistent, unique, elegant, meditative. Almost like a cold climate Lacrima! Tell your friends, this wine is dope!

Much better of what I expected. Dry fruit shows beautifully. I wine to linger over dessert and pastries.

Too much dried fruit, rassins etc. Over extrated and some notes of nail polish.

Crazy, cuckoo, beautiful aromatics. Lots of flowers. Palate: lean, reddish-pink fruit. Good acid. Love this wine.

I like this a lot, very fragrant with violets and fresh flowers, tea aromas, some lighter spices notes. The palate is edits bodied reminiscent of Loire Cabernet France in a lighter vintage.

Floral aromas of roses, red fruits, dry and balanced on the palate, something like a wine in between a Barbera and Pinot Noir. Medium bodied with good acids, clean finish.
