Today grape types and regions tend to be typecast in order to satisfy expectations. Mainly of regulatory bodies and experts who get upset with wines that don’t conform. “What the heck is this?” Rock Point’s wine has more of a Beaujolais-meets-lively-Italian feeling that traditional Pinot charm and sweetness. A delicious and delightful drink. Lightly chilled, it is a fabulous partner for white meats such as roast chicken. If your budget allows, I highly recommend a stash for summer picnics.
