Tasting Notes

There is a vague whiff of menthol to the equally pretty aromas of various red berries, orange peel, spiced tea and rose petal. The lacy, delicious and appealingly textured medium-bodied flavors possess a building intensity that culminates in a dusty and youthfully austere finish. This solidly persistent effort needs more depth, but the underlying material appears to be present such that more should develop in time.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (82), April 2021

Medium deep purple, lighter rim, with an immediate lift to the bouquet, a few whole bunches, but not many. Pretty ripe on the palate, a touch of heat and not so much middleground, finishes quite well.
