Thrilled to be writing the first review on this wine! Pours a deep inky magenta, almost neon on the rim. Bold aromas of red and black bramble fruit and ripe Ranier cherries. Significant spice and some minerality, a touch hot on the nose despite the moderate 13%ABV. Medium+ body with bright juicy acidity, medium tannins in balance. This is a delicious, juicy, fruit-forward wine that will pair with a range of food and is so easy to drink. At $35 per bottle, this is a bit above my everyday drinking price range, but I give my sincere kudos to Mr. Burt and Mr. Wareheim for a successful maiden voyage.

Dark plum color with subtle berry and plum nose. Bright blackberry fruit upfront, then a lingering tart berry finish.

Deep magenta. Light bodied. Red fruit. Butter, earth. Acidic tongue tip pretty tingly.

Mildly fruit, with pear being the dominant flavor. It is creamy on the mouth, and is overall pleasant.

Red fruits, bramble, med body and high acid. Not too complex, but in balance and a good pizza wine
