A crisp, lively red for summertime meals.
Dark ruby with the barest touch of garnet. Intense, high-toned nose of crisp, winey cherries, rock dust minerals, and fragrant underbrush. Crisp, intense, dry cherry fruit, with lots of chalky minerals. Medium body, with fairly crisp acids and a bit of very fine-grained tannin adds a nice tactile feel. A little short on the finish. B. Imported by Vintners Estates Direct, I got this for $17 at Spec's on Smith.
