Lovely! Cherry, blueberry, pomegranate, violets, touch of pepper, herbs. Bright, balanced, tannins are mostly integrated.

Quite the blend I feel like if an açaí bowl, with all the fun garnishes, including flowers, was made wine, it would be this.

Normally relish the Seabra wines but this was too young and not my favorite. Dark fruit, sun dried tomato, and savory herbs but not much flesh. Better the second day and will check in again in a year or two

A little bit of earth, a little bit of black fruit, a little bit of salinity. Enjoyable.

Nice wine for the price, especially with a nice chill. Great restrained fruit, slightly juicy, great mouthfeel, good acid. Nice and versatile pairing wine and relatively low abv.

Dark red and blue fruit, peppery spice, and herbal notes with wet stone minerality. Mellow tannins and fresh acidity make this the perfect candidate for a chill. Delicious with BBQ chicken pizza for dinner. Purchased at Popina in Brooklyn, NY.

Wasn't sure about this at first. Semi dry but this young vintage is pretty heavy on the tannins. After a few sips I realized, naw, this was made to be consumed with food. It played beautifully with smoky Bosnian cabbage rolls and a dill-heavy potato salad.
