The kind of bitter little pill we all love in summer, a carbonic masterpiece from Oregon with a dab of Pinot Gris. Matchhead and pitch-fire nose, all your green angsty briar fantasies evolving in slo-mo over a core of ridiculous cherry lollipop.

But then you taste it. Stunning metallic mineral lays back sighing on a downy stem bed, engorged fruit purple-pink and throbbing, a juicy claw down the middle: smearing savory deliciousness in all directions. Lip-smacking clean and fresh, coming up for air brings you face-to-face with the enveloping grip and clasping finish. A mind-boggling, toe-curling wine.

2016 SAINT REGINALD PARISH ‘Reggie’ PN/PG 92/8 Willamette Valley Oregon 12.5
