(From 2008 Vintage)
Vibrant ruby-red colors coupled with attractive aromas of dried red fruits such as cherry, currant, plum and strawberry. Essences of cinnamon, cider and red-orange tea intermingle with earthy elements of forest pine, rose wood and sagebrush. Flirting in the background are hints of peppermint, pistachio, pink-shaved ice and ponzu. On the palate the wine shows both a driven cranberry-like feel balanced by richness from its density. It nishes both savory and sweet.
