TASTING NOTE: Aromas of red berry, rose, thyme and a whiff of camphor shape the fragrant nose. Sleek and graceful, the lithe, savory palate delivers juicy strawberry, crushed raspberry, Mediterranean herbs and white pepper framed in glossy tannins and fresh acidity. A mineral note evoking smoky flint lingers on the finish. Editors' Choice. Score - 93 (Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 1, 2019) Price $ 23.95
