Michael Gill Cellars 2018 Estate Bottled Counoise

Bright ruby color. Aromas and flavors of cranberry, rose hips, fresh oregano, cumin, and bay with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light body and a seamless, interesting, medium-long finish imparting notes of watermelon with rind and paprika with no oak flavor. A fresh, juicy, joyful wine with a great sense of authenticity; a terrific summer pick.
