"Here too there is a lovely freshness to the equally bright and exuberant aromas of cool red and dark cherry, earth and soft spice wisps. There is fine richness to the caressing and sappy medium weight flavors that culminate in a dusty and mildly rustic yet wonderfully refreshing finale. This saline-inflected effort should also drink well on the early side if preferred."
