"WHY I LOVE IT" by Sommelier Kristin Olszewski: "We all have those grapes we’re in love with and for me, it’s always been pinot noir; expensive or humble, France or California, red or rosé: I love it all.
This wine reminds me of summers in Western Massachusetts. We’d pick wild berries and eat them while sunbathing in the local rivers.
This wine tastes like eating raspberries inside of a waterfall; little droplets of mineral driven water interspersed with the freshness and pure juice of just picked red raspberries. So clean and pure, it’s the alcoholic version of a hydrating face mist."
