2018 Reviews: “Pale orange. Vibrant, spice-tinged aromas of strawberry and orange zest reveal a subtle floral overtone and a touch of succulent herbs. Juicy and tight on the palate, offering light-bodied red berry and floral pastille flavors that are given a tangy edge by a citrus pith flourish. Finishes silky and tight, with repeating spiciness and a hint of bitter cherry pit.” – 89pts, Vinous
