Fresh spring scents of berries and crisp acidity. Well done.

Still pretty tight, but showing its softer side on the front end. Silky then firms up quickly but the grip is welcomed. If I had another bottle, I'd hold at least 4 more years.

Like fresh watermelon jolly-ranchers. Just picked up my 2014, not sure if any of these 12 bottles will be reserved for summer!

It would be near impossible to choose between Heidi's many rose's. But this is a close second to her pret a boire. Lots of fun cherry and red fruits for a merlot rose. Everything in check. #pnv15 #heidibarrett

Great tannins and bright fruit, fuller bodied for a rosé, with medium plus, racy acidity. Dry with notes of watermelon Jolly Rancher...in a very good way! A substantial rosé! {...and notice I didn't say "masculine"! #getanewdescriptor #broadenyourvocabulary} 😊
