Tasting notes (Josh Raynolds) Bright violet color. Spicy dark berries and cherry pit on the pungent nose, with a peppery nuance adding spicy lift. Minerally and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors and a hint of medicinal herbs. Gains sweetness with air and finishes precise and long, with sneaky tannins adding grip.
