Previously available for $12.00
Raspberry, herbs, and some rusty, dusty mineral notes emerge on the nose along with some gamy hints and a nuance of burnt brownie and herb. A touch of trapped CO2 adds a prickle on the tongue, though when it’s released this is clear, light and transparent in the mouth. There;’s a nice acid edge blending tartness to the raspberry and wild cherry flavors that gain subtle herbal, inky and violet flavors in the mouth. perhaps uncomplicated, this is very well balanced and just a pleasure to drink with some saddle leather notes emerging on the backend and Syrah driven gamy notes gaining prominence with air. The finish is moderately long and fresh with this small little tannins just rolling off the tip of one’s tongue. Really fun to drink. 89pts
