This pale pink blend of 67% Grenache and 33% Cabernet Franc in a can taps the winemaking talents of Josh Klapper and original art from Sharon Ryder out of Joshua Tree. It offers apricot blossom and Pixie tangerine scents on the accessible if sweet nose. On the palate, expect orange and sliced lemon notes, with bolder red pear flavors and zippy acidity.
