Tons of wild red berries, strawberry milk candy, hint of herbs. So clean, refreshing and juicy on the palate. Beautiful acidity. Not a complex wine but a pleasure indeed.

reserved nose of cherry w wild strawberry & raspberry patch, bordering eucalyptus yet also w brown sugar ~ juicy acid enlivens the pop of fruit on the palate which transitions into a finish of graphite and volcanic ash

Rather disappointing... virtually no nose. Selling in NY at Marta for $18 a glass ... expected something good at that price.

High acidity and good mineral quality but lacking in the mid palate and finish. But hey, it's the entry level!
