Lois scored this wine: 89/100

This medium bodied wine has an abundance of dark stone fruit, particularly cherries and plum to both the nose and palate. Some minerality is evident as it was produced in a blue slate area. It has a long finish. It was beautifully paired with braised pork belly. This bottle is not available in Canada but was given to us by Birgit herself at the winery.
