Strawberry tea joy in a bottle. Full on Central valley Driscoll strawberries rather than the cute, delicate, wild alpine strawberries you might find in an old world example. The tea is pretty much the same, tho. Glug, glug, gone

The Stolpman family is on a tear! Thanks Raj for talking them into planting this, it's quite rad! Very delicate, strawberry, tea, crazy electric raspberry color. Big fun! Can't wait to try the petillant naturale!!

Another fantastic sommelier selection. Really light and bright, with a bit of petulance, a perfect red wine for a hot summer day - or really any other time. (At Formento's)

Just the most gorgeous thing. Light, pretty, but laden with flavour. It's got a tangy red fruit profile, bit of warming spice in the background. Compete joy to drink, a dangerous bottle!

Strawberry tea, electric rocks and California sunshine. Not as lean or savory as a Jurassic version, but no one seems to be complaining.

Red currant. Sour, candied cherry skin. Salt water. Crunching acid.

Beautiful bright cherry and raspberry, blood orange, orange blossom and touch of thyme and cardamom - delicate but a beautiful, round texture that made for a lovely food wine that paired wonderfully with shared dishes of grilled octopus, cauliflower, and ricotta spread.

Rosé on steroids, and I mean that as a compliment. Super bright. Tart red fruit. With the dark mineral vein. Poundable. #TrousseauFest2015
