Rather pale color, smells explosively alcoholic yet light and fragrant, quite volatile, with a nice cocoa and earth edge to the golden raspberry fruit with a very fresh, estery note and some chalky notes – Packed with sweet fruit upfront and a touch of nori, really bright fruit here with some RS backing it up, melon rind and herb notes add complexity and freshness, it burns a bit but still has a crispness that is appealing. A fruit bomb for those not interested in fruit bombs though it is decidedly defective yet strangely appealing with a long finish with cutting acids and small stiff tannins. Weird shit but I still find it intriguing 87pts

Reserved candy berry, rose, and bell pepper notes on the nose. The wine is initially smooth in the mouth but lacking bright acidity, black tea fruit; it has a hot, woody finish.

Jammy, spicy, fruitbomb of a nose. Flavors are a bit drier than the aromas would suggest. It's a bit rustic, with some dark chocolate and raspberry notes, definitely has some heat and a lingering finish.

Great nose of toasted cedar. Medium bodied with a tight raspberry core and dry fall leaves on the palate. Good structure throughout and finishes with a long toasty semi-sweet jamminess. To me it combines some nice elements of a Pinot and a Zin. It's growing on me.
