Light purple red, very good clarity. Raspberry, blueberry and prune notes in nose. Cherry, raspberry, strawberry and blueberry flavors, slightly lactic finish with some soft seed bitterness. Slightly tart overall, but tasty. 4078 cases made.

Purple-red, very good clarity, light-to-moderate pigment extraction. Butter, blackberry and mint notes in nose. Blackberry flavor with cherry undertone, rounded mouthfeel, butter, lactic, mint and tart blueberry aftertaste. Later, blackberry with an undercurrent of black currant aftertaste emerges, replacing tart blueberry. Some skin astringency, slight seed bitterness. Lovely complexity and varietal expression.

Fantastic Thanksgiving wine. Perfect medium bodied rich red.

Very fresh, I would've guessed it was much younger. Would be perfect on its own or paired with light dinner. Light berries in the aftertaste
