This debut effort from a small, family-owned winery offers light, pretty scents of Dr. Pepper, red berries, rose petals and vanilla. It's a delicate wine, sculpted to capture the nuances of Pinot, without attempting to bulk it up unnecessarily. The flavors play out sweetly across the palate, finishing with milk chocolate and spice.
