Solid deep red fruit with a bit of dryness. Little dusty and delicious.

Peppery, lots of minerals, crisp and oddly refreshing. Full without overpowering.

From central mkt. recommended by employee. Great with grilled lamb. Nicely crisp and acidic, followed by mild savory notes. 13.5 alcohol. Good alone too.

Lovely wine. On the nose, huge amounts of smoke bramble, and strawberry. Classic pepper. Baking spices or cinnamon and nutmeg. Tons of juicy red fruit up front, boysenberry jam with great acidity that lingers.
