"Open-knit, featuring a fun ball of white cherry and peach fruit flavors, lined with a subtle verbena note. Breezy finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made. -JM " (WS)

"Vivid peach skin color. Displays fresh citrus fruit and red berry scents, along with a subtle floral nuance that emerges with aeration. Silky in texture and nicely concentrated, offering juicy raspberry and blood orange flavors that tighten up on the back half. Finishes on a tangy citrus zest note, with repeating florality and very good persistence." (VM)

"Lots of rose blossom and peach skin in terms of aromas with pretty and subtle fruit on the nose. Full body, plenty of fruit and a lively finish. It’s focused and vibrant. Drink now." (JS)

"This is a soft, aromatic and ripe wine. It wears its high alcohol lightly, showing off good acidity as well as rich strawberry flavors. An attractive touch of spice mingles with the final crisp acidity. Drink now." (WE)
