The role of wine as a beverage sometimes gets forgotten; this is a wine that aspires (I assume, being presumptuous) to be that and nothing more, and it does that well. It's a wine I would reach for all the time.

Perfect summer wine, you could even serve this slightly chilled. Low alcohol, nice acid, and a light beaujolais body. #stolpman #ballardcanyon

What the what? Once you stop looking for the Sangiovese, this is just plain glou-glou delicious. On the patio with a burger? Hell yes.

Bright red fruit, light bodied, bright and airy, medium acidity, silky soft tannins. Would be very fun to pair this with food.

Really enjoyed this wine. Interesting texture, balanced acidity, nice fruit, even some cantaloupe type notes.
