Reviews and Accolades



The Wine Front - Gary Walsh

Such zip, perfume and freshness. Tangerine, plenty of spice, including jalapeños, a little brittle toffee. So bright, firm chewy sandy tannin, a subtle white balsamic tang, but really so clean and vital, with excellent length. This is outright delicious and so compelling. Bravo. I love it!
