2015 vintage. Black fruit balanced with a touch of herbaceous green pepper. M body and tannin. Still very young.

Not sure how the 14 #wine vintage stacks up around here in the Monticello AVA. But, these Veritas wines are solid. Young. Soft, pure black fruit, light green notes. Easy.

Pleasantly off-dry, with a delicate floral character, excellent with spicy food, and with sufficient weight for ham or game birds.

Light, not as bold as expected but hints of earthiness and cherry cola taste (in a good way). Semi dry.
