Ruby red color. Aromas of herbs, black cherry-berry, faint spice. It seems volatile. Nice acidity on the palate is balance by medium body and notes of black raspberry and tea. I appreciate that oak seems restrained. The finish is sweet. Balanced and food-friendly, it's a nice wine, if a bit simple. I congratulate the winemakers on keeping the alcohol to a dull roar. 12.9% abv | sample

The notes on this are amazing - especially lavender. Was a wine from @screwtop and plan to buy a case.

Wild raspberry, white pepper, dark chocolate and vanilla nose. Bitter chocolate raspberry, cherry, vanilla, baking spice with a velvet finish; awesome pinot noir!
