TASTING NOTES:

– Sigurd White, 2015: Radiant yellow, like sunshine tipped in a glass. Wattle, honeycomb, sweet ginger, spice, and dried apricot aromas. Bronzed tropical fruits, unctuous, fleshy pineapple, saline peach, and mango seed. Incredibly smashable summertime irrigation… 12.5%, $30

– Sigurd Red, 2015: Cherry flesh and ruby red. Resting red meat and christmas cake scents. Fallen cherries and baking blood plums on wet earth. Luscious and supple, with a sappy tannin grip. Profoundly fun… 14%, $30
