Though this paler blush blend of Merlot, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc has a good bump of residual sugar, it’s held together by the shining acidity and matched by the juicy fruit. All whole-cluster, part Saignée (Pinot) and part maceration (Merlot and Cab Franc), this is off-dry strawberry jam, spicy raspberry and cinnamon on a round, medium-bodied palate, finishing snappy. Chill and enjoy this summer. Nice new tighter and fresher direction for the winery; keep it up. —Gismondi On Wine (
