Stewed cherries, juicy raspberries, hay, slight menthol, and juicy berries to finish. Medium body with serious fruit structure.

Generally I'm a big fan of the wines of Savoie, particularly Mondeuse with its blend of fruit, pepper, and savory earthiness. This wine just went a little too far into the pepper and savory realm, rather green, without enough fruit to balance it out. Great acid and structure, but perhaps 2013 was a cool or difficult vintage for Savoie reds?

Thank you @KermitLynchWine for expanding horizons yet again. Light-medium body, yet rustic. Plenty of cherries and raspberries to balance some earthy funk.
