Description

"...Kirsch, red and black cherries, leafy herbs, herbes de Provence, and subtle floral notes all flow to a medium-bodied, silky, seductive beauty that has no hard edges, a light texture, and tons of upfront appeal." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"...an attractive, easy going red from Epiphany. Bright red fruit and floral notes are nicely lifted in this pretty, gracious wine."  ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

After months of being out of stock, Gypsy is finally back. This is by far one of our most popular wines, the 2015 didn't last long and we were only able to make a few cases more of the 2016 vintage. It will sell out again and even faster this year!
