Extremely light in color, this bottling from the super cool-climate Presqu'ile Vineyard offers delicate aromas of cranberry and bay leaf with the slightest touches of nutmeg and vanilla. It's also quite fresh and dainty on the palate, but this study of lightness steadily reveals flavors of pencil lead, sandalwood, dried rose, wild mint and pine.
