Tons of wild red berries, strawberry milk candy, hint of herbs. So clean, refreshing and juicy on the palate. Beautiful acidity. Not a complex wine but a pleasure indeed.

Nose: cranberry, dried strawberry, red plum, red cherry, rose, bay leaf, and Ise, slight coffee, bittersweet chocolate, leather figs.
Taste: similar to what was in the nose, medium plus tannin Pinot Noir is my thought. Really like this wine and again at $20 a bargain.

Fruit forward, bright, higher tannin for my liking. Still enjoyable!

reserved nose of cherry w wild strawberry & raspberry patch, bordering eucalyptus yet also w brown sugar ~ juicy acid enlivens the pop of fruit on the palate which transitions into a finish of graphite and volcanic ash

2015 in infancy. Foundations that are very earthy, that kind of pulsing zippy acid, and slightly elevated medium weight on the palate for Etna.

This is as close to enjoying a red as I’ve had but I’m a white wine person. Smooth and light.
