When I poured it is was like a creamy pomegranate foam on top. It’s a raspberry bubble cloud, and reminded me of a framboise lambic pour. Inhale the wave of raspberries, strawberries, lemon, some cherry, a whiff of hay and a touch of something herbal like maybe thyme. Take a sip and there’s massive berries, a little of that same hay, and some tart cherry. It’s bright and dry and juicy at the same time. It’s a glass of celebration!

Pairs with Cheez-Its: the strawberries explode

Let’s harken back to my one of my favorite Strawberries

Color is a glistening pale golden. Breathe in a bit of a sea breeze of salt, some tangerine, grapefruit and something herbal like rosemary. Now I’m craving jamón. Time for the glou-glou and there’s apples, pears, some tart lemon, clean slate and a lot of love. What I wouldn’t give for some grilled sardines, a dozen oysters, and some squishy cheese. Take me to the plaça, let me feel the sun on my face, get a little pink (maybe from the sun or maybe from the wine), and break out the cribbage board. Let’s take the afternoon off!

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: Brings out lemon and a tart zing
