A bit fruitier than anticipated but balanced. Held up to sous vide ribeye steak. Tart berry with a mild tannic finish that was very pleasant.

Take a dill pickle from a good deli and bash it around in a well-made humidor then set that whole affair in front of a bowl of blackberry conserves. Et voila! Initial impressions. With air, this sheds the dill and cedar and replaces it with wintergreen. Overall a beautiful expression of a difficult and contentious variety. Satisfy your curiosity here; you'll enjoy it.

Floral nose. Medium light body, a dash of pepper and some currant-like fruits. Very unusual and distinct wine, quite tasty

Floral with a bit of earthy funkiness to it, not as enjoyable as the last time we opened a bottle but still good
