This is no fine wine; but it’s good fun: sweet cherry and strawberry high notes that disappear too quickly. Airy, lacking body, but pretty face (remind you of anyone?). Not well integrated. Fun tannins that steal the show from a short eucalyptus-tinged finish that could have, would have been nice if hadn’t been over powered by acidity.
More raw than round. Grassy, with hints of not-quite-ripe green pepper. Sussurations of moss, wood and spice are almost there, just too distant to really be heard–it’s probably my imagination. The color is impenetrable dark purple.
