Vivino Profile


Aaron:  This was an easy-drinking winner for me.  Ocean waves and blackberries on the nose floated alongside water-soaked tree bark.  The flavor was super juicy with lots of fruit and almost overripe blueberries and blackberries.  There was a hint of smoked tobacco at the end but to be fair there was pretty much no complexity to this “juice”.  The end of the flavor had an aftertaste of cold-brew coffee and my points are primarily for the pleasing, drinkability of this bottle.  91 points

Teri: The woody smell on this wine is diversely different from the juicy flavors on the wine itself. Flavors of tart cranberry and raspberry flow across the palate with light tannins on the finish. Not very complex but easy to drink and still carries slight bold characteristics. 86 points
