Wine SpectatorBold and snappy, with festive flavors of strawberry and cherry preserves, accented by smoky spice. Drink now. 220,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastIts electric pink color is a bit darker than the style trending in the state. Bubblegum aromas are out front, followed by cherry and strawberry notes that also fill the palate. Kiwi flavors persist on the finish. It gets bogged down at times, but there is still plenty to enjoy.
