The initial offering by this second-generation winery that’s one of Pacific Northwest’s most hospitable leads with aromas of blackberry, poached plum and tomato vine that follow through with notes of Tootsie Roll and blueberry syrup. Low alcohol, easy tannins and juicy acidity combine to give this yummy length.
