Brilliant ruby color in the glass with hues of pink and purple on the outer rim. The wine shows youth in the glass with reflective clarity and intensity. The viscosity of the wine seems to be moderate and suggests a medium body on the palate. The nose is deep with dark mineral, wet leaves, and mushroom. The fruits are layered with a combination of dried black cherry, red plum, and fresh boysenberry. The secondary earth notes of sassafras, cola, and dried violets offer added complexity and layers on the nose. The palate offers lush, ripe red and black cherry fruits with blackberry and plum skin. The forward fruit character is dry on the palate with layers of mineral, wet leaves, and mushroom adding earth and organic influence. This wine is beautifully balanced with lively acidity and a soft finish. Drink now or cellar for 1-3 years.
