Tasted blind. Nice bright tawny color. Notes of cherry, rhubarb, stems, moist soil and pea shoots. Lots of fruit in the mouth. A bit disjointed and kind of went all over the place. I guessed red burgundy, and there were other guesses citing other continents. A true CMF wine. We all guessed the color and the planet right.
