Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Tart cherry, savoury herb, high acidity. Light body. Pair with charcuterie. Tasted June 2017. 87 points
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A fruit forward bouquet showcasing raspberry, strawberry, pomegranate, and a small touch of earthiness. On the palate lots of red berry flavour with a hint of wet leaves, and chewiness. Light bodied with delicate tannins, medium plus acidity and lingering strawberry sweetness at the end. Pair with herbed lamb and smoked salmon apps.
