Pretty cherry blossom perfume wafts midst dusty granite and crushed mineral tones in this approachable Spätburgunder. While a touch more nuanced than the producer's basic-label Pinot, it shares its juicy, easy black cherry and plum flavors. Sunny acidity and fine, yielding tannins add to its easy drinking feel. Drink now through 2020.
