Light ruby garnet color. Gorgeous, high-toned nose of sweet/tart cherries, cool plums*, powdered stones and lemon dust. Piercing, almost electric flavors of high-toned cherry and tingly, stony minerals. Crisp acidity and a fine dusting of tannin dominate the texture of the finish. Amazing purity of flavors and liveliness. Leaves the palate tingling and invigorated. A-. Was $29.99 from B-21 Wines in Florida (an excellent retailer who ships).
* Remember that William Carlos William poem, "This is Just to Say"?

I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold
