  • 90 Points James Halliday - 83yo vines from the Kevin Schild Vineyard at Light Pass, fermented with 33% whole bunches. Light and bright to the point of rose; strawberry/raspberry/red cherry flavours and the barest hint of tannins. I suspect it didn't meet up with any form of oak during its vinification."
