Ruby coloration. Can see through to the bottom of the glass for transparency. On the nose, black cherry, cherry cola, forest floor, and smoked oak. On the palate, medium body, nicely balanced, cherry, strawberry, sweet fruit forward flavors. Some oak, minerals and earthiness present. Long finish with the fruit. — 3 days ago
Briny notes off the cork. Maroon in color and partially transparent. Strawberry rhubarb pie aroma. Super juicy upfront, reminds me of watermelon jolly rancher. Mild acid that is more malic to me. Pretty good heat on the finish, and lingers with a tart cherry. Strong showing! — 10 days ago

Medium lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits with nutty floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple, pear, lemon citrus zest and melon, complex, mineral tones with soft creamy oak and sweet spice. The wine was fresh, with vibrant crisp acidity, well balanced on a long finish ending with fruit and floral notes. Nice, drink now! — 19 days ago
