Re: What Goodfellow/Matello are you drinking?

I have to say (first time posting on this thread) that a very delicious sounding review just landed for the 2017 Biggio Hamina Rose Pinot Noir Ella Claygate Vineyard! Sounds positively tasty: "Deep bright-hued orange. Potent red berry, blood orange, rose pastille and exotic spice qualities on the d...
