Very strong on the nose initially, but calms down after airing it out for about 5 minutes. Medium bodied and has a silky texture; easy to drink. Feels like mainly red plum and currants flavors with some cherry. Slight tarty aftertaste that disappears quickly.

Subtle notes. Clean finish. Fresh start. Quickly one of the favorites.

Smooth, tart red. Nice if you like lighter reds.
