Delicious. Distinguishing flavor profile of Anderson Valley. Jammy red fruit, slightly cloudy unfiltered like appearance. Excellent finish.

Pale ruby. Red fruit, cranberry, ripe raspberry, black cherry, sweet dried fruit. Cinnamon and nutmeg. On the palate- tart red berries, possible residual sugar. Bitter and lean. M- acid/body. Short finish. Extremely fruit forward. New world wine.

Good but my favorites are definitely River's Turn and Redwood's Edge.
