Rose metallic licorice nose. Interestingly different wine with subtle fig and earth play. Compararable in weight with a Washington pinot noir, but less cloud.

Soft BBQ notes, boysenberry, blackberry with licorice powder and lavender on the nose. Tannic ripe berries and forest floor on the palate. Lingering baking spice and a soft subtle finish.
